Yowza Captiva Review:

We had the chance to test the Yowza Captiva elliptical trainer and found out that what makes this unique machine appealing are essentially these two features – The Variable Motion & Cardio-Core Training. Both unique features provide one of the best workouts in the industry. The rear drive, swing up motion technology is totally smooth and whisper quiet, with no impact at all on your joints.

Captiva’s “Rampless Incline” level is full 50% grade . It’s a silent and maintenance free. Yowza has also increased the electronic stride length up to a full 28”. Other features such as Surefit™ Pivoting Foot Pedals, Eddy Current Braking System and a hefty 15 pound heavy flywheel making this unit very smooth and enjoyable to operate.

Pros & Cons:

Pros: Smooth, quiet, fantastic motion and feel, loaded.
