We asked people in gym clothes if they were actually going to the gym
There are no treadmills in the Hidden Café
We’re all guilty of wearing gym kit around campus regardless of whether or not we’re actually going to the gym.
It’s quick, easy and above all it allows you to be comfortable in the Laidlaw instead of feeling constricted by the shackles of skinny jeans which are just a little bit too skinny.
We took to campus to find fellow girls in gym kit and find out whether they were actually headed down to the Edge at some point or if, like most of us, they woke up this morning and just felt it was a lycra kind of day.
