If you’re passionate about health and fitness it might be your desire to take action every day. Imagine if of a 9-5 at your desk instead, day was composed of weights your, pumping music and happy, sweaty clients? Sounds more fun than spreadsheets and endless emails.

‘After feeling pretty “blah” health-wise for some time and having to get active, I got into running. That became my new love.
