I was recently given the opportunity to review the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun. This is the best-selling massage gun on Amazon, with over 9000 reviews and five-stars given by 90% of all reviewers. As an avid runner, I’d seen different massage guns promoted by my local running store. Massage guns are widely used by runners, and other athletes, to provide relief after tough workouts and to prepare for big events. It’s not unusual to have sore muscles after a tough workout or after working a new muscle group. Massage has been shown to provide relief and allow another tough workout sooner. But who has the time (or money!) to get professional massages after every workout? Massage guns allow you to self-massage!

First Impression of the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun

Within the exterior cardboard box, the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun comes stored within a heavy-duty, zippered carrying case. I was super impressed with the quality of this case and the storage capability. The OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun set comes with a charging cable, 5 attachment heads for different massage needs for your entire body, and instruction guides. When fully charged, the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun has a 4-hour battery life.




As someone not familiar with trigger point therapy, anatomy, or massage, I was glad that the set came with a guide for massaging different body parts. Each body part is marked with  X’s to show trigger point spots to apply the massage gun to for best results. The massage gun can be operated in either manual or automatic mode. The manual mode holds a consistent pressure, with 4 different operating levels. With the auto mode, the massage gun will automatically change the pressure to allow varying degrees of pressure without having to manually adjust.

While I consider myself, at a minimum, a weekend warrior, the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun has strong power and is good for both fitness enthusiasts and people who suffer from back pain. It is extremely light-weight and quiet, even in high-speed mode yet is very high quality. You can also use the gun in either manual or auto mode, so it’s extremely customizable to your needs. Given that professional massages usually start at $1 per minute, the value of a massage gun is priceless!

Habitica – Help Build Habits by Gamifying Your Life

I was recently searching for an app that I could enter daily to-dos that would automatically rollover each day to help build some daily habits. I received all sorts of recommendations, but one really stuck out – Habitica. The recommender said it was perfect for someone that likes social games and the idea of gamification. What that means is you earn points and build onto a character for every completed to-do! You also lose health when you don’t complete your to-dos. I downloaded Habitica from the Google Play store, but it is also available in the App Store. When logging in for the first time, it will ask if you are using the app for health and wellness or education or business and provide you sample habits and tasks. You can also fully customize the app with items that you want to accomplish.

Habitica in Google Play Store

Habitica is broken up into 4 sections:

  1. Habits
  2. Dailies
  3. To-Dos
  4. Rewards

Habits sreenshot


You can set up both Good Habits (things you should do multiple times per day like eat vegetables) and Bad Habits (nail biting). Completing a Good Habit earns you gold and experience, while completing a Bad Habit subtracts health.



Dailies are tasks that you have to do every day, like brushing your teeth or checking your email. You can adjust the days that a Daily is due by clicking the pencil item to edit it. If you skip a Daily that is due, your avatar will take damage overnight. I’ve been trying to implement a daily workout routine, so added my individual workouts as Dailies. I also have Dailies for different social media tasks that I want to complete each day, like post on Instagram, my business page, and Twitter. You can earn experience points and coins when completing your Dailies to upgrade your character.


I haven’t used the To-Dos section yet, but this is a place to add one-time items. You can add due dates to your To-Dos and you earn experience points and coins for completing your To-Dos.


This section allows you to spend your coins on new weapons and accessories for your character.


There is also a social aspect to the game with Parties, Guilds, Challenges and the Tavern. These features allow you to chat with other users and join challenges with the your friends or strangers based on similar goals.


I highly recommend Habitica! It has a great layout and is easy to use. I like that it breaks out habits that can be completing throughout the day (like drinking water) versus daily habits (10 squats, for example). I’m also motivated to complete my Dailies so I don’t lose Health points. Whenever you lose all your health points, you drop down a level and lose your experience points as well.
