Always thought that sounded like a bit of an oxymoron, with Flintoff and Simon Jones and all.
Edit: change it back to fitness, dammit!

My dream jobs have always been journalist, podiatrist and book shop owner.
I'd hate to work in computing. Only figured that out after starting an Information Systems degree, though.
I'm living both my dream and nightmare scenarios out right now.
Basically anything outside. I'm not a very good indoor-work kind of person (despite coming to Uni to do Human Geography) and love working outdoors. Got a job Gardening atm, hard-ish work but physical labour has never been an issue for me. Used to work on a commercial fishing boat when I was younger, so kind of developed a love of outdoor work from there. Wouldn't mind getting back into that line of work again, but it would have to be my own boat/business and it would take years working for other people and learning all the necessary skills again to begin to even think about starting out on my own.
Would hate to be stuck in an office 24/7 or at least any job that doesn't involve working with different members of the public every day. Just hate the idea of a repetitive job and having to do the same things day-in-day-out. Saying that, however, I know that's the most likely kind of job that I'll end up in after Uni finishes.
Where's my money?
I got a job supervising childrens' play areas. It's swings and roundabouts, really.
President of SKAS - Kat is King | Proud member of CVAAS - One of the best | LRPLTAS - Rosco rocks!
The NZTailender Supporting XI:
H Rutherford, N Broom, Craig Cachopa, M Bracewell, D Brownlie, BJ Watling, D de Boorder+, I Sodhi, B Wheeler, H Bennett, A Milne
R.I.P. Fardin & Craig
TV Producer. Oh, hang on...
I've already done it, but shredding paper at a recycling plant.
TBH, it's much easier to deal with an aggro public than the hidden **** of being in the job; the heirarchy. The sergeants and above in Police have a seemingly unique ability to kill off any love for the job which outstrips the worst abuse you face from the public. Ask any copper, dealing with the bosses is comfortably the worst part of the job. Even above paperwork.
Myself, I'm working towards my dream jobs; pilot and/or pro musician. The music one especially is tough if your only aims are to be in a famous band but if you have others, as I do (composer for bands/movies, engineering, production, etc.) there's tons of opportunity. Just have to build a rep like anything else.
Job I'd hate; manager of any stripe.
Sports Administration (Current, the travel opportunities are awesome, and I've me tsome absolute champion people)
Professional Coach (not gonna happen)
Sport Journo (looking into this a bit further down the track)
Sports Administration (Some people are just ****s, and when alot of your work is with volunteers, you can't exactly come down on them like you would a paid staff member)
Avatar not by choice.
Anything where I get paid to do nothing
Any factory work
Anything dealing with customers
