Yowza Navarre Elite Elliptical Rating
Yowza Navarre Elite Elliptical Detailed Overview
The Navarre Elite is the top model in the new CardioSure(TM) line-up of rear drive elliptical trainers by Yowza. As the top model in the series, it is the most expensive, retailing for $2,499, with Yowza offering a lifetime warranty on the frame and braking system and 7 years coverage on parts.
There are multiple customizable features on this model that include an adjustable stride, adjustable incline and adjustable pedals. The electronic adjustable stride offers users the option to go from 19 to 30 inches, which is pretty impressive, and the power adjustable incline goes up to 60% (one of the steepest inclines available on any elliptical trainer). Even the ErgoFit self-pivoting pedals are adjustable. This model can also go in both forward and reverse, and is designed with Yowza’s new SuperGrip(TM) dual action handlebars that help to engage the upper body to increase calorie burn and target the muscles of the arm.
Coming to the console, you’ll find a built-in 3-speed fan, tablet reading rack, a USB charging port and an MP3 port with Fitsound Bluetooth enabled speakers. And while you will only find 9 pre-set workout programs, there are 9 user-profiles and heart rate monitoring programs that can be used with the built-in wireless hear rate monitor (wireless chest strap included). There are also 16 levels of resistance to choose from. As with all models in this series, the Navarre Elite is equipped with the MyLiveLight(TM) App, complete with a Bluetooth enabled Intelligent Weight Management (IWM) scale and programming for the ability to track calories and personalize workouts using real time stats.

The Bottom Line
The Navarre Elite is a premium, top of the line elliptical trainer that would be the perfect workout machine for almost anyone. Few elliptical trainers will offer so many ways to customize and personalize a workout as this model, and few elliptical trainers will offer strides up to 30 inches and inclines up to 60%. Overall, this model impresses from top to bottom, and if you willing to spend a little extra money, we highly recommend the Yowza Navarre Elite, as part of the CardioSure(TM) line-up for 2015.
