Additional Information: The paper draws on findings from an ESRC-funded multi-sector study of workplace learning. Using a case study approach, the paper focuses on an under-researched group of workers in the rapidly expanding health and fitness sector of the economy. The paper argues that evidence of 'training' activity, as reported in national and government surveys, is highly misleading and that in-depth case study methods are required to reveal the nuanced reality of workforce development. In this case, training was found to deaden rather than awaken individual creativity.
