Pros The Yowza Pompano touts a core strengthening feature not available in other elliptical brands. With ergonomic superiority and an impressively natural range of motion compared to other bands, the Yowza Pompano has a strong fan base among fitness enthusiasts.
Summary The Yowza Pompano is a very standard machine with the twist of a core feature that is self-described as an element unique to the Yowza brand. It features pivoting foot pedals and a two-tiered console for ease of use and comfort. The included workout fan has three speeds to choose from, allowing you to stay cool while ramping up your workout.

Detailed Overview

Beware: It seems as though Yowza has gone out of business. If you are looking to buy one of their machines proceed with caution.

The Yowza Pompano has a moderate noise level and a great warranty, making it an ideal home machine compared to other brands that can be quite noisy. The core feature doesn’t seem to be scientifically proven, but plenty of online reviews from buyers report strong results that leave them satisfied.

Our Least Favorite Features

A few downsides to the Yowza Pompano:

  • Fixed length of 20”, making it difficult for certain body types
  • Customer service has recently been called into question

The Bottom Line

With its core feature workout and ergonomic excellence, the Yowza Pompano is a great buy for those who are new to elliptical machines. The stride length is not adjustable, which means only average body types will fare well on its design, although some of small and longer statures have managed to use it with no problem. Creature comforts are abundant, including a water bottle holder, 3-speed cooling fan, iPod docking and a user-friendly console. The usability of this machine is quite novice, but also provides enough workout programs and incline adjustment to challenge someone who is already very physically fit. Like many models from the Yowza family, the Yowza Pompano is not the best, but definitely still in the game.
