The Yowza Islamorada is not perfect as there are some complaints regarding this elliptical. Some users don’t find assembly to be exceptionally easy and that it works best if two people are on hand. However, the biggest complain is from users users who find that they can only increase the stride if you increase the incline. In others words, if you want a 24 or 25 inch stride then you have to increase the incline as well, which some users don’t like.
Overall the Yowza Fitness Islamorada Elliptical trainer is a highly functional piece of fitness equipment. However, the rather high price tag may make it less affordable for those people who are on a limited budget.
