The Yowza Bonita elliptical features Cardio Core design. What that means is the upper body motion of Cardio Core differentiates from traditional ellipticals by providing an “intuitive path” of motion contrary to straight path handlebars.

Scientifically Cardio Core produces superior results, and thanks to a friendly price it is little wonder the Yowza Bonita is a hot deal for 2013.

In terms of specs, the Yowza Bonita features Servo Motor Direct Drive (16 levels of resistance), 18-inch stride length, LCD display and wireless chest strap for heart rate monitoring.

Workout Programs

The Yowza Bonita elliptical features 12 preset workout programs, including nine user profiles.

User profiles store the weight, height and sex for each user so if you share the elliptical with other household members your personal data is quick to access and reference.

Workout programs include: Target Time, Target Distance, Interval, Endurance, Target Calories, Fat Burning and more.

A heart rate program is also accessible via the preset options. Use the workout program with built-in pulse grips for quick heart rate readouts.
