Yowza' s patented counter-rotational Core motion targets the muscles of internal and external oblique's, rectus abdomens and Serrates anterior like no other cardio machine.

Works well, very quiet, very smooth.
Louis Panesi
The instructions on assembly are not very clear and some of it is wrong for some of the screws provided, but fortunately these are not for the main parts.
If this review sounds like you'd like the Captiva, buy it!

Update to prior reviews - the screen went dead (yet again - replaced it previously), the flywheel had problems (yet again - replaced it previously after considerable pain with customer service), and I eventually gave up and decided to pay the trash people to cart it away...I really liked this at first, but the quality just turned out to be terrible, with multiple major problems, customer service issues, and net-net it was just not worth the price that I paid for the use I got out of it.....Older review data: First, some quick background to give some context on my comments here. I have been a very heavy user of a stepper for a few years. I essentially wore mine out and am a big fan of steppers; but in looking for a new one, the market now is small and the prices for quality steppers have gotten a bit ridiculous compared to other cardio machines. Additionally, I've been a bit worried about my knees over the long haul, so I started looking at alternatives. I ended up purchasing the Yowza Captiva from the company's website. I went with this one in large part because of the adjustable motion on the Captiva, but viewed it as a bit of a risk because of a lack of objective reviews (but what was available online was favorable).

After about a month of near-daily use, here are my impressions:

Delivery and setup: Delivered within specified window by friendly professional people. Box was in good condition. Inside the box, some shifting of contents had occurred, but nothing major and everything in good condition. The manual for setup was better than most, parts were well-marked/organized, and setup was uneventful with only a few minor bouts of confusion.

General impressions: I am very very pleased with the workout I receive with this machine.

I've had it for 3 months. Works well, very quiet, very smooth. I am glad I bought the Captiva ( not the Sanibel). worth the extra $500 because of the stride adjuster and incline adjustment feature. having that is a must with this machine. the LCD is only adequate, not very fancy. That is my only complaint but it's not enough to drop down from 5 stars. I paid $1999 for it. That was a big factor. My first choices were ellipicals that cost roughly $3800 which were out of my price range (Landice).

I bought the Captiva directly from the company at the time it wasn't available on Amazon or I would have bought it here. I have had mine for 1 year and a little over 1 month. I have a medical condition that owns me if I do not stay in shape. Which also restricts the type of work out I can do and elipticals are best for me. As a result I work out 3 or 4 times a week 30 minutes each and I maintain target to maximum heart rate the entire work out (220 - age = max heart rate).

First I am only average in nearly every regard and I put the thing together easily without misstep I expect that means the instructions were adequate or better. The ipod dock was a nice thought from the company and it does work but I didn't buy a music machine from Yowza so I have an ipod dock on my receiver which I did buy for that purpose.

I programmed my own work out in the machine which is an agressive cardio from a previous machine I owned which was easy to do. I am always motivated but rarely graceful which means I sometimes jerk and pull as I work out waiting for the natural high that hits after about 10 to 15 minutes when my breathing can keep up easier and I begin to feel "into it". The machine takes my abuse and remains tight and noise free. I really appreciate the upper mechanism working in a more circular way as apposed to the back and forth of others. I feel it helps me expand my ribs better and that is important to me since my condition causes my ribs to fold in reducing that area.

I generally do not look at the display much I like to keep my eyes closed and focus on my work out however when I do peek at the read out I see what I need easliy and clearly (for instance using the grips to check heart rate).

I had another elliptical trainer that I used regularly for several years, until it recently died. When I began researching a replacement, the unique capabilities of this product intrigued and the good reviews swayed me (all over, not just here) enough to buy one. I've just gotten it setup and tried it only once so far. Compared to my old elliptical however, there's no comparison. I'm convinced I picked the right machine for me, and hopefully it will continue to deliver down the road.

A few comments:

I was surprised to see that the handlebars are not one piece as you might think, like a bicycle handlebar . They are independently geared to the leg motions, and the acceleration of the bar appears to change throughout its travel enough that your two arms are performing slightly different motions. I believe this is more beneficial that it might appear from watching the videos. As other reviewers have reported, I was pleased to see that the motion does indeed feel much more natural than it looks. I'm excited to see the potential benefits of this combined with the variable stride. The elliptical motion is very fluid and natural as well, which of course is subjective but is extremely important if you expect to use it continually. At first it had more of a "pogo-ing" effect that I expected, but this motion came to feel natural after on only a few minutes. Personally, I find this type of motion much more comfortable and easier on my bad knees (one of the prime reasons I use an elliptical) than the ramp-style mechanism of the Precor or Cybex machines.

The machine seems rock solid overall, though the central column does rock slightly as one reviewer pointed out on another site.
