as the title. I work for a financial recruitment company, so just in an office all day, can eat when I want etc never fatigued physically from it, so I've got it quite easy. What does everyone else do?

I work from home as a web developer so don't really have an excuse not to exercise as I can be quite felixible with how I use my time. It does mean that's there's always food available but I only have healthy stuff in the house and it means that I can prepare some decent fresh food.

I found things far more difficult when I worked in an office in Birmingham...the last thing I felt like doing after work was exercise.

I work in Close Protection/Surveillance and it's a fvcking nightmare for training. Currently I have a viral infection from 1 week of averaging about 4 hours sleep a night with a 24 hour shift thrown in as well, plus I can't take sick day's so being at work now hanging out of my 4rse will make recovering harder, but such is life. Having said that I do more Crossfit type training now as it's easier to work into my schedule than full on bodybuilding type workouts.

Electrical and Refrigeration Engineer, work 12 1/2 hours shifts, 4 days on 4 days off. Gym is full of muppets in the evening when i finish. Always rammed, have let far too many people join the gym. Although after a shift i'm knackered any way. Eating is not a problem though

training to become a pilot.

doesn't effect gym to bad as the schedule is mostly the same, if it does change i have enough time to sort things out and work around it.

always good food available and i can always bring my own so its all good in that aspect.

Project manager, mon to fri 8.30 to 4.30. Eat what I want, when I want ( but stick to 10.30 / 1.00 & 3.50 ). I train late in the day as have small children and evenings are very busy. Train any nights I like 8pm to 9pm, 7 days a week. The hours of work are ideal for my training and family life shame about the pay...
