Yowza Fitness Elliptical Machine Reviews

Beware: It seems as though Yowza has gone out of business. If you are looking to buy one of their machines proceed with caution.

Yowza Fitness sets itself apart from the competition by remaining the only online fitness equipment company without retail agreements. Of all the elliptical reviews we do, this is the only company that doesn't have these agreements, meaning prices tend to be lower on certain models with advanced features, while value remains relatively high. The Yowza Fitness company was known for its excellent customer service, offering both standard and more generous warranties on all its elliptical machines, however it seems this may have changed recently as they now have lower BBB rating and seem to be getting more complaints than they used to. The company sells three different types of ellipticals – standard motion, front-drive and CardioCore.


Yowza was one of the first companies to offer ergonomically correct handlebars that help build up cardio fitness, upper body strength and plenty of toned muscles. This is done while also reducing injury and keeping things customizable to various users. CardioCore elliptical machines know how to patch your body’s own path of resistance and motion, electronically adjusting to give you the greatest workout for your body’s type and ability.

Front Drive:

Front drive ellipticals are decreasing in popularity as fitness enthusiasts opt for rear-drive machines that allow for more adjustability and a smoother, quieter ride. For this reason, the strong majority of Yowza ellipticals are rear-drive.

SURE Series:

Swing-Up Reactive Ellipticals (SURE) enable users to adjust the range of motion without pausing the workout. You can adjust stride length, increase incline and rotate handlebars on particular models, providing the ultimate in custom elliptical experiences. These are great for cardio training and specific muscle toning, as well as all-over fitness. These are also great machines for multiple family members of different sizes and statures, providing a commercial gym quality experience in the comfort of a private home gym.
