CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A woman working out at the West Ashley Planet Fitness says she was asked to leave mid-workout Monday night because her "belly was hanging out."

The customer, Melissa Mantor, is also 18 weeks pregnant.

Mantor said she was working out at the Sam Rittenberg location when an employee approached her and told her she had to leave.

"I was on the treadmill for about 10 minutes before I was approached by a girl who came up to me telling me that she is going to have to ask me to leave," Mantor said. "I was very confused by this and thought I may have heard her wrong. She told me again that I am not able to continue my workout until I change my clothes because I am in violation of their dress code."
