LifeCORE LC985VGS Ellipticals

Compact design…quality craftsmanship… affordable price tag. These are just a few of the reasons why the LifeCORE LC 985 VG Elliptical received the coveted "Best Buy" rating from a leading consumer magazine.

Compact Design

At just 52-inches long, the 985VG is one of the most compact elliptical trainers on the market today. The efficient design allows you to use the 985 VG in virtually any room in your home. Plus, the oversized transport wheels allow you to move and store the LC985VG with ease.

Customized Workout Experience

At LifeCORE, we want our fitness equipment to adjust to your body…not the other way around. That's why we added ergonomic touches like our adjustable foot pedals. These slip-resistant treads adjust easily to accommodate users with shorter or longer strides.

Quality Construction

We want the 985VG to be the last elliptical trainer you'll ever buy. So each LifeCORE product is built with that philosophy in mind. The LC985VG uses a Poly-V Flexonic drive belt that's guaranteed never to stretch. We use bearings instead of bushings for a smoother stride. And we back every single part with a full 2-year parts warranty.

Customer Reviews

  1. Still liking it...


    My original review is above. After two years of using it 3-4 times a week, it is still sturdy, smooth and quiet. I'm up to 12 on the difficulty scale! Very happy with it.

  2. Extremely happy with my purchase


    I purchased my Lifecore LC985VG Cross Trainer 10 months ago. I live on the third floor of a condo unit and I was looking for an elliptical that was compact, quiet and reliable. The LC985VG has proven to be all that and more. I did a great deal of research before purchasing. I narrowed it down to two ellipticals and went with Lifecore because they had a better warranty. A friend helped me assemble it and we encountered only one problem. We thought we were missing some screws based on the parts list, but those screws actually come already screwed on to the elliptical. This isn't mentioned in the instructions. Customer Support was responsive when I called about the problem. I use the elliptical 4-5 times a week. It is a solid, compact, stable, user friendly, quiet, reliable machine that gives me a comfortable and challenging workout.

  3. great quality reasonably priced


    I have had my LC985VG and used it heavily for over 2 years. It is a great machine. It really gives me a good workout and is quiet. The worst thing about it is the computer programs which are difficult to set up and the manual isn't great. I have had questions and called customer service a couple times (understanding the programs was one of the calls) and they were always very helpful. This machine was a really great investment, high quality and a reasonable price.

  4. Quality of unit/workout


    After severly breaking my ankle 5yrs ago I'm unable to run anymore so I have resorted to elipticals for their low impact. I've spent most of the time on the big expensive elipticals in the gym and have recently decidedt opurchase my own. This unit does more more for me than any other gym models ever have. It's quiet and extremely smooth in it's operation. I love it!!!!

  5. great machine


    My doctor suggested an elliptical glider because it was low impact and better on my knees. I was skeptical but now that I own one, it is AWESOME. It doesn't bother my knees at all and my weight is just dropping off. I love it. This was one of the best purchases I have ever made.

  6. Liking this machine


    Got a great price from the online store on black monday. Casual 1.5 hours to assemble. Very smooth and quiet. Seems like plenty of difficulty range. Very sturdy. I was worried about height. I am 73" tall, the machine is in the basement with 84" floor to ceiling and I have about 1.5" clearance. Only negative was 5 week long shipping and it took an email and phone call to get it unstuck.

    Overall I'm very satisfied and would definitely recommend.

  7. Sturdy and worth the money.


    After considering a number of comparable ellipticals, I bought this one based on the "Best Buy" recommendation. I was not disappointed. The machine is rock solid, well built and has a small footprint. After using it for 3 weeks the workouts are challenging but not boring and you really "feel" it after you finish. The computer doesn't have the bells and whistles of some other machines but it has everything you need for a good workout. I highly recommmend this to anyone who is looking.

  8. Great for the price


    This elliptical is the best I've used so far. Its affordable, small, easy to use and my two roomates and I all have our own user id's.

    Its obvious why this was rated a best buy.

  9. great elliptical


    This is the best elliptical I've ever used. I would recommend it to anyone. I shopped for a while since this was a fairly big purchase for me and you could buy a lower quality treadmill and save a little money in the short term, but for this quality of elliptical it blows away the competition. Ive had it for a few months but it feels like it will last forever.

  10. Trainer recommended this to me.


    My trainer recommended this elliptical and I have been using it for about a month. I’m very impressed with its feel and performance. The stride is smooth and matches my natural running stride without stressing my joints. I’m 6’0” and my girlfriend is about a foot shorter than me and after adjusting the foot pedals she says the same thing about the natural stride. The built in programs allow me to vary my routine whenever I want. Great engineering and high quality design. Definitely a top of the line product that I would recommend to anyone looking for an elliptical.
