Yowza is one of the more innovative companies making elliptical trainers, they make claims to over 100 patents.
Yowza doesn’t contract manufacture like some, but own their factory and you won’t find their machines in retail stores, Yowza ellipticals trainers are only sold online. Selling direct to the customer, Yowza elliptical trainers offer excellent value, with the product range focusing on the middle of the market.
The model names of their elliptical trainers shows a fascination with Florida islands which can be a little confusing since there is no natural progression within the model range as you find with Livestrong or Sole elliptical trainers but once you name your company Yowza, why not be a little different.
At $999, the lowest priced Yowza elliptical trainer is the Largo, a compact unit with all the basics covered, including respectable 18 inch stride length.
The Navarre elliptical trainer extends the stride length to 20 inches and adds higher end features such as iPod docking station and cooling fan. The Bonita elliptical trainer introduces the Yowza concept of CardioCore, which essentially adds abdominal training to your elliptical workout.
The Pompano and Sanibel elliptical trainers add features in addition to including CardioCore and extended stride length and pivoting pedals.
The flagship in the Yowza elliptical trainer lineup is the Captiva which is also their biggest seller. The Captiva elliptical trainer features variable stride length, all the bells and whistles you can ask for and an excellent warranty with 5 years on parts and 2 years on labor.
We really like Yowza and their elliptical trainers and recommend all of the models for serious consideration.
