There’s now even more reason to join up, following the refurbishment of the gym’s outdoor functional training area. Parkside Pools and Gym are proud to announce the arrival of the IGNITE RIG, a state-of-the-art functional training frame with multiple training stations including monkey bars, core plates, rebound board, battle ropes, pull-up bars, punch bag, squat rack and more. The introduction of the IGNITE RIG will give our members an exciting opportunity to take functional training outdoors with limitless options for inspirational exercise. We have also added shock absorbing flooring to limit the impact on knees and joints that can reduce risk of injury, and the flooring has marked areas for speed, agility and explosive training.

Nothing beats the feeling of training outdoors in the fresh air and Better can now offer this either as a structured programme tailored to your needs by our fitness team or a functional class on the new IGNITE RIG.
The outdoor training area will still have all the existing latest functional training kit including TIYR, Plyo Soft Box, Corebags, Total Grip Medballs, Dynamax Balls, Battle Ropes, VIPR, Speed Ladders, pro and training punch bags and TRX

A brand new studio hosts a range of group exercise classes throughout the week including Yoga, Pilates, Zumba, Body Pump and many more. Regardless of your age or ability there will be a class to suit you. Please check with reception for further information about booking onto a class and costs.

Nice facilities and a lot of equipment. I would recommend going there... Also, it is very nice to be able to exercise outside in the outside gym area.

Another great excercise on the terrace- so much better than indoors on such a nice day!

The terrace is great, but unfortunately not when it is raining. Not much space inside the gym if you train without machines as the room inside was rented.

Decent public gym, went there at peak time (6:15PM) it was busy but could do my routine without waiting. Cost was a bit high but it is in the middle of Cambridge where everything is expensive. Would use again if were back in Cambridge on business.

Always good. Difficult in peak times for use of equipment but that's to be expected. It's a nice gym :)
