Introduction

The Yowza Navarre was designed to offer a commercial grade elliptical that would not break the bank and it does accomplish that feat in several vital areas of performance.

The Sure-Fit self-pivoting pedaling system is state-of-the-art.

Thanks to this innovative feature, users can easily shift for comfort and performance. The pedals are also cushioned with rubber buffers so your feet will not be too sore after a long workout.

All in all the Yowza Navarre rides smoothly and is pretty quiet. You’ll like the trackless rear-drive design.

Workout Programs

The Yowza Navarre features 16 levels of resistance and 20 inch stride length that will get it done for most recreational users.

In terms of workout programs, the Yowza Navarre 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.

Nine individual profiles are also available to store data as well as wireless heart rate supported with pulse grips. Maximize your workout every time.

Elliptical Features

The Yowza Navarre features blue backlit LCD display that stores all important fitness data.

The elliptical also supports iPod/mp3 players and your music sounds good on hi-fidelity built-in speakers.

Subtle details on the elliptical include a trackless system in the back which means that you do not need to constantly clean and maintain the rollers in the rear.

Traditional dual action handle bars present an opportunity to incorporate both lower and upper body into the exercise.

Bright blue backlit LCD display offers nine user memory profiles which store the weight, height and sex for each user, and twelve preset programs.

Fixed 15 percent incline is a nice alternative to other incline systems found on ellipticals. It provides yet another opportunity to spice up your exercise routine.

Smooth and silent, you’ll really appreciate the quality evident on the Yowza Navarre.
