Pow­er­lifter’s tat­too for gym

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

A GYM goer has paid the ul­ti­mate trib­ute to the fam­ily-run gym which helped get her into shape by hav­ing a tat­too of its logo.

Char­lotte Row­ley has been a mem­ber of Fit­ness4All, which is run by Chris Row­lands and his fam­ily, for six years af­ter join­ing in Novem­ber 2009.

In her time train­ing at the gym, which is based at Adel­phi Mill, Grimshaw Av­enue, Bolling­ton, she has since lost six stone and is now com­pet­ing in pow­er­lift­ing com­pe­ti­tions in the Great Bri­tish Pow­er­lift­ing Fed­er­a­tion.

She de­cided to show her thanks to the team at the gym which helped get her into shape by get­ting its logo tat­tooed on her foot.

Char­lotte said: “I didn’t know how to thank Fit­ness4All for ev­ery­thing. They have sup­ported me in striv­ing for my achieve­ments.

“The gym is a huge part of my life. I don’t know where I’d be with­out it.

“It’s helped me go from an un­fit big girl to a lifting lean ma­chine.

“Get­ting a tat­too seemed fit­ting to say thank you to the team for ev­ery­thing.”

Chris Row­lands, man­ager, said the tat­too is an ac­co­lade his team at the gym.

He said: “When we opened nearly seven years ago I never ever dreamt that one day our logo would be per­ma­nently tat­tooed on some­one.

“It’s really quite an hon­our to think that what we’ve cre­ated means so much to some­one that they’d get a tat­too. Hardly any gyms can say that.”
