The Yowza Islamorada elliptical is a new model in the Yowza line backed by Leao Wang, who once designed for Smooth Fitness. This is one of the company's top of the line models with some bells and whistles not found on lower level Yowza machines.
The Yowza Islamorada elliptical has a generously sized console that gives you all the stats you need while working out and features 21 pre-set programs and 9 optional, adjustable programs for up to nine user profiles.
The specs include:
The Word on the Street
Word has quickly gotten around about the Yowza Islamorada elliptical, and the word is good. Reviewers who have tested this have nothing but praise for the innovative design and the top quality parts, which are made in Yowza's own factory in Taiwan, where they obviously have strict quality control guidelines. While some reviews mention the fact that this machine is ready to go right out of the box, most people move right into talking about the patented CardioCore workout, which uses the elliptical's uniquely designed egg-shaped handlebars to help target your core muscles, resulting in a serious workout for abdominal muscles. One reviewer felt that the Islamorada was quite possibly the best machine on the market.
If you want a commercial grade elliptical with lots of user options, the Yowza Islamorada may be your machine. While many elliptical manufacturers say they have multiple user profiles, very few of them offer such a wide array of options. The stride is adjustable from 19" (appropriate for adults under 5' tall) to a roomy 30" stride that works for even the tallest users. Now add in the adjustable incline which can go higher than any other elliptical for a gruelling 60% and you have a machine that can be used by everyone from the novice who needs to start slow to the serious triathlete looking for an elliptical that can give them a punishing workout.
The manufacturer has added some features not found on most of their other models, like the iPod docking station and three speed fan, which make working out more pleasant. The company has obviously been listening to their customers and are giving them the extras that were missing from their earlier offerings. Although listed at $3000, you can currently find the Yowza Islamorada elliptical on sale for around $2200, which is a reasonable price for a truly impressive and versatile machine.
