Consumers looking for a mixture of LifeCore’s LC990 and LC980 elliptical models might be interested in the LifeCore Fitness LC985Z Elliptical, as it offers popular features from both of these models. At the same time, it offers closer pedal spacing as well as a smaller footprint, which helps make it a better choice when users of various sizes will be using the equipment.
As with both the LC980 and the LC990, the LifeCore Fitness LC985Z offers 12 Preset Programs as well as 4 Heart Rate Control Programs. It is also similar to both models in that it can store data for up to 9 different users. All three models also feature slip resistant foot pedals, which make the ellipticals safer to use. The adjustable pedals also help prevent injury while the dual action arm handles found on all three models helps the user get a complete workout.
One feature that sets the LifeCore Fitness LC985Z Elliptical apart from the 990 model is its weight. While the 990 weighs 137 pounds, the 985Z weighs only 93 pounds. It should be noted, however, that the 990 is capable of accommodating users of up to 350 pounds while the 985Z can only accommodate users of up to 300 pounds. Therefore, it is important to consider the size and weight of everyone that will use the machine when deciding which model is best for you.
The LifeCore Fitness LC985Z Elliptical offers a clear display that provides a great deal of information to the user. In addition to providing information regarding the selected program and the user’s personal information, it also displays the current date, time, and temperature. As with all LifeCore exercise equipment, the LC985Z is also made with a durable frame and utilizes a full bearing system in all moving parts, which is backed by a five year warranty on parts and a one year warranty on labor.
