    Work on Coke ovens, can be hot, dusty conditions. 12 hour days and nights. Plenty of time to get in gym on days off, we only work 14 shifts in 4 weeks then we get 10 days off.

    Work in telecomms.

    Ever changing shift patterns. Changing shift times
    Different locations each day.
    Might not know till the day before

    9 hours driving one day then 1 hour the next

    No set break times. Work in comms rooms so food water or dust what so ever

    On call sometimes

    Travel to work via train or/and van

    Day shift one day then nights next.

    Working away alot around the country

    Very phyisical work

    So all you 9-5 office workers think your self lucky!

    Going to have a go at getting off-shore with them (or another) myself too hopefully with inroads to a move to the US of A! Will keep you posted about the vacancies if you like? You could keep me informed of any over there!

    I work in a Royal Mail mail processing center the place is massssssssive, walking everywhere due to its size is a mini cardio session, im forever pushing cages, filling cages, lifting and tipping sacks of mail. I workout at home(just completed my third week of home working out) twice a day before and after a shift have sunday off from working out. I just do cardio and body weight exercises :-)

    Boning hall.

    Basically they bone and pack, and i get to weight and label the trays and the bags of meat inside.

    And it's damned knackering, during the week im running off numerous bits partly due to dieting, plus i get severe back cramp if i don't.

    Trays are around 25kgs and need to be lifted on/off around about every 5 seconds, you need to be very quick to do it.

    I wake up around 4.30am and get home about 4pm, it's about a 40 minute drive typically.

    But on the upside, breaks are nearly dead on two hours, i can time my meals to near perfection i know exactly how much to eat depending on how busy it'll be.

    I spent over a year out from exercise and due to the nature of web development (sitting down all day) I found that the ligaments in my inner thighs (think it's the abductor muscle?) had shortened. So when I started running I was somewhat in pain for a while! I hadn't realsied how the job had made me so sedentary!

    Ooo, I don't know...having a splitting headache whilst messing around with code can be unpleasant! Especially when something really really really tiny is wrong in the code and you have to find it!!!

    I work as a quantity surveyor and it doesn't really affect my training. I'm lucky that I can eat when I want through the day, whether I'm on site, in the office or driving to a meeting. Plus I very very rarely miss a training session because of the hours I work.
