The Buzz

UPDATE:  The Yowza Siesta has been discontinued. You can take a look at all of the new folding models for sale to find a comparable new treadmill.

The Yowza Siesta treadmill features a commercial grade 2.5 hp continuous duty motor with a heavy precision-balanced flywheel, crowned rollers with sealed bearings, multi-ply running belt, and a robotically welded steel frame. The Yowza Siesta has an advanced shock absorption system featuring a floating deck that sits on multi-durometer elastomer rings and the same Swing Arm shock absorbtion system found on more expensive Yowza machines. The 1" thick maintenance-free solid wood deck is reversible for extended life and is pre-lubricated at the factory with a phenolic wax coating.

Yowza Siesta Folded

With the quality components and manufacturing used in Yowza machines, virtually all treadmill reviews rate the company’s products much higher than competitor models. They require minimal assembly, the speaker system is better than most sub $1000 machines can offer, and if you can’t afford the $1299 Sebring Transformer treadmill (their best-selling folding model), you can save $300 and go with the new Siesta.

What We Say

We were blown away when Yowza introduced their new line of treadmills and ellipticals, and they have done it again with their latest model. Since the Juno (a non-folding treadmill) has been discontinued, the $999 Yowza Siesta treadmill is now the company’s budget model.

It contains the same features as the Juno and comes backed by the same outstanding warranty – 2 years in-home servicing and 5 years on electronics and parts. The Siesta folding treadmill is another solid performer from the fitness equipment experts at Yowza. It rates a Good Buy.
