Now that the weather has turned colder and we can no longer go outside to run, bike, or even walk, our home gym is seeing a lot of action. Unfortunately, my husband’s new home office is just one uninsulated, unsoundproofed wall away.
Headphones keep the vital workout music under control. But, the repetitive sound of the fan can be annoying (or so he tells me, I can’t hear it over Katy Perry!).
So, when I received the opportunity to try the Ozeri 3x Tower Fan with Passive Noise Reduction Technology, I knew he would be thrilled with the reduction in noise. And, as a longtime user of all sorts Ozeri products — from frying pans, to digital food scales, to pedometers — I knew this fan was destined to become another family fave.
When the fan arrived, I was impressed with its size. At 44”, it’s tall enough to create a much-needed breeze low (when using the rowing machine or yoga mat), but also high (for the stationary bike, chin up bar and weight bench.)
But, as tall and sturdy as it is, it’s actually among the world’s thinnest fans – measuring less than 3 inches thick. Great for tight spaces like our home gym, which has a little too much equipment squeezed in.
This fan also offers three different speeds with three independently controllable fans, for nine levels of cooling and airflow. This is important, because we often have multiple family members in the gym at the same time. And, when the gym contains two teenagers with differing ideas on how high or low to turn the fan (and everything else, it seems!) this can be a lifesaver.
Of course, the most important feature is the noise reduction. According to official Ozeri literature, the secret is the “canted fan blades that utilize the physics of blade curvature to generate opposing sound waves to reduce blade noise and isolate the soothing sounds of the airflow itself.” This is science, folks!
Plus, the fan has an extended range remote control, a touch sensitive LED control panel, and even a 7.5 hour timer (programmable in 30 minute increments). If there was such a thing as a smart fan, this would be it!
And, although it doesn’t matter quite as much when used in the workout room, it also looks great! The fan has a unique, modern design and a cool, reinforced glass base stand.
The Ozeri 3x Tower Fan with Passive Noise Reduction Technology is available on Amazon. The List Price: $129.95, but it’s only $79.00 for Amazon Prime members and includes Free Shipping. And, with Christmas right around the corner, this would make a great gift for the fitness enthusiast on your gift list!
