Introduction

The Yowza Jupiter Pilot features 16 levels of Servo Motor Direct Drive with Magnet resistance.

The elliptical also has a good selection of features with built-in cooling fan, mp3 input, hi-fidelity speakers, wireless heart rate monitoring and self-pivoting pedals.

Workout Programs

The Jupiter Pilot features eight pre-set workout programs.

The workout selection is basic yet Yowza Fitness has never put much of an incentive on designing built-in workout programs.

The elliptical does, however, monitor heart rate with built-in pulse grips or wireless chest strap.

Yowza Jupiter Pilot Features

The Yowza Jupiter provides an adjustable stride length from 18 to 22 inches.

The adjustable stride length is a really nice feature we are starting to see on 2014 and 2015 ellipticals.

Customize your workout furthermore with 0 – 25 percent electronic adjustable incline.

The Yowza Jupiter elliptical features ErgoFit self-pivoting pedals.

The pivoting pedals flex back and forth with each stride — delivering a natural foot movement to make cross-trainer workouts more comfortable and easy on your joints.

The Yowza Jupiter features an mp3 audio jack and hi-fidelity speakers.

There is a very good variety of resistance levels (16) offered through the Servo Motor Direct Drive with Magnet resistance.

The frame feels stable and durable but at 212 lbs. it is far from the most compact elliptical on the market.

Access your tablet with a built-in rack and enjoy the added comfort of a three-speed cooling fan located directly on the console.

Warranty & Guarantee

The Yowza Jupiter elliptical warranty and guarantee includes:

– Frame: Lifetime
– Parts: 2 Years
– Electronics: 2 Years
– Labor: 1 Year (In-Home)

Conclusion

The Yowza Jupiter Pilot elliptical is a good middle of the road trainer.

The self-pivoting pedals and adjustable stride length are two really good features that add variety and intensity to your workout.
