The LC990 elliptical is made by Lifecore Fitness of Vista, California. This older Lifecore elliptical model is known for being a simple, solid trainer that requires little maintenance. However, it doesn’t stand out from the competition.

Features of the Lifecore LC990

 

  • Compact size – This elliptical has a small footprint of 51”x23”.

 

  • High quality components – The LC990’s frame is made of heavy metal, not plastic, and has high quality parts such as coated bearings on the inside too.

 

  • Easy maintenance — The parts have been assembled for easy maintenance by the home user. Thus “regular people” can easily tell how to fix glitches, so service calls aren’t needed. 

 

  • Excellent stride Lifecore ellipticals have stride lengths for just about everyone. The LC990 is ideal for shorter users.

 

  • Adjustable foot pedals – Adjustable pedals promote comfort and allow users to alter their elliptical motion.
  • OK warranty – With 5-7 years on parts and a year of labor, Lifecore elliptical customers are fairly well protected against breakdowns. Additionally, the machines are designed for easy at-home repair.
  • Moderate number of programs – The Lifecore 990 has 12 preset programs. These include heart rate programs that adjust the machine’s resistance in accordance with data about the user’s pulse.

Elliptical Misses

 

  • Resistance – Whereas many ellipticals have 20 levels of resistance, the LC990 has only 12 levels.

 

  • Capacity – The cross trainer is labeled with a user capacity of 350 pounds, but this seems generous. Heavier customers have reported that the LC990 is unsteady.

Overall Rating for the Lifecore Elliptical

 

The Lifecore LC990 elliptical doesn’t stand out against other brands. Smooth Fitness, Sole Fitness, and ProForm are some brands that offer more value for a similar price.
