It isn’t easy finding motivation to go to the gym, particularly after a stressful day at work, and let’s not forget the muscle soreness that’s bound to follow. That’s why this Actigun 2.0 Percussion Massager — reduced to $128 from its normal price of $299 — might be worth checking out. Designed to get as close as possible to a professional massage, this device works to relieve muscle tension after exercising, which can improve recovery time and make post-workout discomfort all but disappear.

Basically, this device pummels your aching muscles with 1,800 to 4,200 percussions per minute, while increasing blood flow and easing tension in the target area. Not to mention, it feels pretty darn good. The Actigun contains an AI Smart chip which uses what the company calls “humanized intelligent interactive experience” to react to your body’s condition and chooses a percussive strength that feels soothing but never overpowering. It also comes with an LCD touchscreen display should you decide to customize the therapy that feels best for you.

The Actigun also comes with all the perks you’d expect from a modern piece of therapeutic technology, like high-efficiency thermal venting to reduce heat, four massage heads designed to target specific muscle groups and a built-in lithium battery that can offer over 240 minutes of continuous usage. The ergonomic handle makes it easy to angle the device to wherever you need to on your body.

If you dread the inevitable soreness that comes with exercise, or if you simply want a relaxing way to unwind post-workout, the Actigun 2.0 Percussion Massager should be on your radar. It’s on sale right now for $128, or over 50 percent off.
