Yowza Fitness is traditionally one of the innovators in the fitness world often taking the lead rather than following what other exercise equipment manufactures are doing.
Fitting, then, that the Yowza Islamorada features not one but two new features from Yowza Fitness entering 2013: SuperCore upper body workout technology and Intelligent Weight Management (IWM).
The Yowza Islamorda features 21 pre-defined workout programs including nine user member profiles.
User member profiles store weight, height and sex for each user; a nice feature for a crowded household with multiple elliptical users.
Workout programs include: Target Time, Target Distance, Target Calories and Core Interval Resistance.
Like other new models for 2013, the Yowza Islamorada features Intelligent Weight Management (IWM) software. Including a wireless weight scale, the digital assistant trainer designs workouts specific to your weight and exercise goals.
The program is a really innovative feature that is, as of right now exclusive to Yowza Fitness, and will serve as a benchmark for other fitness manufactures in the near future.
The Yowza Islamorada is highlighted by the SuperCore patented motion handlebars.
The unique handlebars are egg-shaped with rotating grips for a extremely efficient ab workout. Those familiar with Yowza’s CardioCore technology will find that SuperCore is a slightly enhanced version.
Finally starting to become more frequent in elliptical designs, the Yowza Islamorada provides adjustable resistance from 19 inches to 30 inches. The 30 inch stride length, in particular, is one of the longest we have ever seen on an elliptical and definitely a bonus for taller or longer limb users.
In addition to the adjustable stride length, users may tailor the incline from 0 to 60 percent.
Monitor heart rate with a built-in receiver and feel stable on the elliptical with Yowza’s SureFit pedal design.
The Yowza Islamorada is music ready with compatibility to mp3 devices, including iPod players. The docking station also charges your mp3 device, giving it even more value.
