Yowza Fitness Elliptical Reviews
Ah Yowza - this company do things a little differently. They are one of the younger elliptical trainer manufacturers and have shook things up a little with a mix of innovative design and really useful advanced features - not just cheap gimmicks.
I have to admit, I really like their machines and the way the company operates. They didn't set out to be "Just another" elliptical maker. If you are looking for something different and a whole new user experience .... Yowza Fitness might be the place to start looking.
You only need to have a look at their main models to see what I mean about different designs. The main technology combines high quality Rear Drive mechanisms with their unique patented Cardio Core - Rotational Handlebars. This motion twists the upper body working your abs to within an inch of their lives!
They have also focused on user friendly but advanced consoles with variable pre-set programs. Did I mention incline rates of up to 60% with some models? These trainers will satisfy even hardcore users.
Not Cheap .... But Still Good Value!
They don't really do cheap very well. They do have a couple of machines in their budget range, but their real strength is in their top end machines. If you are a serious user, shopping in the $2,000 range - you should have a look.
The Yowza Miami is quite a bit more expensive than the Islamorada - but to be honest, I don't think it offers that much more - so my advice is to go with the Islamorada.
The Sanibel i35 is a decent trainer but very close in price to the Captiva - I would go with the Captiva!
One other model of note is the Navarre Elite - a new 2015 upgrade of the old Navarre elliptical. I have tried it and it is impressive - much improved on the old Navarre. It has a higher price tag though. Not sure if it improves much on my favorite!

Whichever model you go with you'll definitely be getting something different with Yowza. They are a quality, reliable company with excellent customer service and they make outstanding elliptical machines - what's not to like?
