TimTam vs Theragun

In this TimTam vs Theragun review, we will compare the TimTam Power Massager Pro with the Theragun PRO massage gun. While TimTam is especially popular within the MMA community because of its co-founder Georges St-Pierre and an appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast, Theragun is often considered the best percussive therapy device overall. This comparison will help you decide between the two brands’ flagship products.

Comparison: TimTam Power Massager Pro vs Theragun PRO

One of the most powerful massage guns on the market, the TimTam Power Massager Pro features a temperature sensor and a heated massage head. The device itself consists of a special antimicrobial plastic surface, which provides an extra layer of defense against bacteria. Also unique to TimTam’s massager is the GPS storage compartment, which makes sure you will never lose track of your investment.

Its competitor in this comparison is designed by California-based tech wellness and recovery company Therabody. The Theragun PRO is the 4th generation of the original percussive therapy device. Ordinary people, celebrities such as Miranda Kerr, and world-famous superstar athletes including Cristiano Ronaldo and James Harden swear by the device. But which of these two massagers is the right one for you?


Let’s kick off this TimTam vs Theragun review by comparing the amplitude of the two competitors. Sometimes also referred to as stroke length, this value describes how many millimeters the massage head percusses into your muscles.

An amplitude of 12 mm or more is considered a deep-tissue massage, while 10 mm or less is more of a surface-level massage. Both devices are way above most of the competition in this category with a stroke length of 20 and 16 mm, respectively.

Winner: TimTam

20 mm

16 mm


Force is what TimTam massage guns are known for, so one could expect their flagship massager to be powerful. But none of the percussive devices we have reviewed so far comes even close to the 75 lbs the Power Massager Pro generates.

That said, it also takes a considerable stall force of 60 lbs for the Theragun PRO to reach its limits. This is about 15 lbs more than what the Hypervolt Plus can handle and definitely enough for most amateur and even professional athletes.

Winner: TimTam

75.0 lbs

60.0 lbs

Frequency & Speed Levels

Next up in our comparison are the maximum percussions per minute. While the TimTam Power Massager Pro delivers up to 2800 strokes in 60 seconds, the Theragun PRO hits your muscles up to 2400 times per minute.

TimTam’s device is not as flexible though – you can only choose between 1000, 2000, and 2800 percussions per minute. The Theragun on the other hand comes with 5 different speed levels that allow you to adjust the speed to your needs a bit better.

Winner: Draw

1000 to 2800 ppm, 3 levels

1750 – 2400 ppm, 5 levels


The Theragun PRO can connect to your Android or iOS smartphone via Bluetooth. This allows you to easily adjust the speed your massage gun is running on. The app also contains massage routines and instructions for different types of sports and muscle groups, making the Theragun PRO very easy to use even for beginners. TimTam does not currently have this feature on any of its devices.

Winner: Theragun




With the incredible amount of power the TimTam Power Massager Pro generates, it should not come as a surprise that the battery life would suffer a bit. But even after the Texas-based company managed to double the usage time compared to its predecessor, it still only runs for about 1 hour continuously.

Compare that to the Theragun PRO, which can be used for up to 2.5 hours until it needs to be recharged. Even better, a second replacement battery is already included with the device – meaning you could enjoy up to 5 hours of massage therapy before you needed to find a plug socket.

Winner: Theragun

Up to 1 hour

Up to 2.5 hours


When you want to use your massage gun at the office or simply not annoy everyone in the locker room, the noise a device emits is an important buying criterion. Both competitors generate around 70 dB, which is very much acceptable for such powerful machines.

Winner: Theragun

Around 70 dB

Around 65 dB

Weight & Dimensions

Conclusion: TimTam Power Massager Pro vs Theragun PRO

The TimTam Power Massager Pro is the perfect device for you if value one thing above everything else in your massage gun – raw power. A stall force of 75 lbs is the highest we have come across so far and virtually guarantees a very intense massage experience. No wonder that is especially popular among MMA artists, who suffer repeated blows to their bodies and muscles.

But for everyone else, the Theragun PRO is the better fit. It doesn’t lack behind its competitor that much in terms of stall force and has several advantages when it comes to personalizing the percussive massage experience with way more speed levels and twice the number of massage heads. In connection with the Therabody App, it is easier to use and also comes with significantly more battery life.
