The Word on the Street

UPDATE:  The Yowza Bonita model has been discontinued and replaced by the all new Pompano machine.  It has similar specs and a few more added features.

The Yowza Bonita elliptical trainer was inspired by the Captiva model, which was Yowza’s first Variable Motion Elliptical (VME) trainer that came with the patented Counter-Rotational Core Motion. This upper body exercise targets muscles in the abs and obliques so that you can get a full workout.

Other features of the Yowza Bonita include a silent rear drive brake system that is rollerless, a ramp-less power incline, an 18" stride length, Sure-Fit™ self-pivoting pedals with perfect spacing for maximum comfort, an iPod dock, quality speakers, and wireless heart rate control telemetry.

While there are no user reviews on this new model yet, we expect it will prove to be a smooth, high quality, and reliable unit. Yowza elliptical trainers are designed by the patent owner who was behind many Smooth Fitness machines, so the reputation for excellence precedes Yowza models.

Our Thoughts on the Bonita Machine

At just $1,199, the Yowza Bonita Cardio Core Value Elliptical launches an exciting new way to get in shape with a revolutionary technology and a low low price over the Captiva, the first counter rotational elliptical that was launched in 2011.

The technology included on this trainer beats most everything else offered with traditional ellipticals at this price. The rollerless, trackless pedal and incline design means that there are no wheels to wear out or concave track to collect dirt and dust.

Also, the enclosed flywheel does not require maintenance. It is no wonder that the Yowza Bonita elliptical trainer is backed with a very generous 5-year parts and 2-year labor warranty. If you wanted the $2000 Captiva but couldn’t afford one, the smaller and more affordable Bonita is the perfect all-body fitness machine for you.
