It’s also a great alternative for children’s parties, with a number of multisport packages available for a special occasion sporty kids will always remember!

Outlooks Gyms
Outlooks Gyms is probably the most unique location in Cambridge to take a workout. Situated on the top floor of Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre, Outlooks has sensational views through its floor-to-ceiling windows across Parker’s Piece and the historic city centre beyond, which might just make you feel like you’re walking on air while you’re training hard.

Magnificent views aside, Outlooks is also one of the best-equipped fitness centres in the city, offering users a complete, all-round package, with state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment – including treadmills, cross trainers, Arc trainers, rowing machines and steppers – as well as a full complement of resistance weights machines, including the popular VibroGym. The experienced Outlooks team are always on hand to assist you with the equipment, or create a specially-tailored exercise plan, and after your workout you can have a deserved recovery session in the sauna, or take the plunge in their roof terrace hot tub.

A flexible range of membership and payment packages are available at Outlooks Gyms, with three-month, six-month or annual memberships for adults, students and seniors and particularly favourable rates if you pay by monthly direct debit. Direct Debit and Short Term Outlooks Memberships entitle you to unlimited use of the gyms, including sauna, and hot tub, from 9am to 11pm 7 days a week, together with membership of the Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre selection of Free Fitness Classes is also included in your membership.
