A FEMALE bodybuilding champion based in Barnsley has been shortlisted in the National Fitness Awards.

Carly Tierney, who is a personal trainer at DW Sports Fitness, beat off competition from hundreds of entrants and is one of only six finalists in her category.

After battling bulimia for over 16 years, Carly is now a fully qualified personal trainer, nutritional advisor and sponsored professional athlete.

Carly said: "I love working at DW in Barnsley, it’s a hive of activity and provides the best possible environment for my clients to succeed."

Winners will be revealed at a glittering awards ceremony on Friday, December 4, at The Athena in Leicester.
