The new Yowza Navarre elliptical machine is the perfect trainer for anyone wanting commercial quality performance at an affordable price – and without a lot of gadgets and other add-ons you do not need.
The bright blue backlit LCD display on the Yowza Navarre elliptical machine offers 12 programs including 3 Target (Time, Distance, Calories), Random (with 50 variations), Intervals and Endurance (each with 8 intensity levels), Watts Control, Fat Burning, Heart Rate Control, and Manual. The display also holds 9 user memory profiles to store weight, height, and sex of each user in the household.
Specs on the Yowza Navarre include:
UPDATE: The Yowza Navarre model was replaced by the Pompano as the base elliptical in the series. The Navarre badge was transferred to the higher end models, the Navarre Plus and the Navarre Elite.
The Word on the Street
The Yowza Navarre elliptical machine is loaded with features. Starting with the Sure-Fit™ Pedaling System with perfect spacing, this technology provides for sure comfort. The pedals pivot on cushioned rubber buffers so there’s no numbness in the feet, a problem with cheap ellipticals that don’t have articulating footpads. Next, the rollerless, trackless rear-drive design is super quiet, smooth, and maintenance-free.
The Yowza Navarre features a 20" stride length, an iPod dock and hi-fidelity speakers, controls on the moving handlebars to adjust the 16 resistance levels, a wireless HR monitor, a robotically welded steel frame, and a great selection of programs. The Yowza Navarre is backed by one of the best elliptical machine warranties in the business covering 5 years on wearable parts and electronics, and 2 years of in-home service repair.
The first elliptical reviews on this $1,199 model are promising. Most new Navarre owners have used many other elliptical machines and they say that this is their favorite — both for the quality and for the performance. As Yowza points out, there is no track or rollers on this rear-drive model to get dirty or be in constant need of lubrication. The trainer is just solid and well made.
The Yowza Navarre elliptical machine offers many good things but it isn’t our favorite from the company. If you are going to spend $1200 on a crosstrainer from Yowza, go a little higher and get the Sanibel with the revolutionary Counter-Rotational Core Motion. That model is the first full body core trainer on the market and it sells for under $1500.
Here is your chance to rant or rave about the elliptical you use at home or at the fitness center.
