The Lifecore LC-CD600 Elliptical with Fixed Stride Length

The mid-range Lifecore LC-CD600 elliptical positions your body upright for a better ergonomic feel while striding. Once you experience how comfortable this machine is, you may never want to use a treadmill or traditional design elliptical again.

The Word on the Street

UPDATE: As of 2016 it appears that Lifecore Fitness is no longer making elliptical machines, choosing to focus on their exercise bikes and rowing machines instead.  

Check out our top picks in the $1000-$2000 category and $2000-$3000 category for comparable Best Buy machines.

Average and tall users will appreciate the smooth gait and natural walking stance that the 21" fixed stride has to offer.

The Lifecore LC-CD600 elliptical also features a low 8" step-up height for easy mounting yet still allows the user plenty of room for working out under most ceiling heights.

The cushioned footpads help alleviate foot fatigue, and a wireless chest strap in included as standard equipment for use during the heart rate programs.

All four of the Lifecore Fitness C-Drive elliptical machines offer solid, compact frames, club quality performance, and highly effective fat burning workouts.

Reviews by new owners of the Lifecore LC-CD600 reflect their pleasure with every aspect of their purchase. Many of them remark that Lifecore’s customer service is exceptional and that other companies could learn much from them.

As for performance, they call the CD600 the equivalent of a commercial quality trainer; comfortable, rugged, and offers the heart pounding, fat burning workouts they want in an elliptical trainer.

Our Thoughts

At just $300 more than the CD400, the fixed stride length Lifecore LC-CD600 elliptical has a larger footprint, heavier frame, side rails, chest strap, and a two year longer parts warranty than the 400 model.

But at $1999, the LC-CD600 is a bit overpriced as the overlooked middle child of the Lifecore line up. For better value, we suggest you step up to the CD500, a 17" - 25" adjustable stride machine, that sells for $2199. If you are on a budget, then review the CD400 selling at $1699.
