Abstract [sv]

Hälsorelaterade sjukdomar ökar och medicinska kostnader för samhället växer. Mycket av detta skulle kunna förebyggas med ett hälsosammare levnadsmönster. Samtidigt visas det att barn i skolan har mindre motivation till fysisk aktivitet än tidigare. Denna studie vill undersöka om de yttre, inre och autonoma motivationsfaktorer som fått några vuxna att göra livsstilsförändringar är desamma som motiverade dem att vara fysiskt aktiva som unga. Syftet är också att studera vad som motiverar dessa vuxna att fortsätta var fysiskt aktiva. Tre semistrukturerade kvalitativa studier genomfördes på en träning- och motionsanläggning i mellersta Sverige. Målgruppen var tre stycken medelålders kvinnor som varit fysisk aktiv som unga men som haft ett uppehåll för att sedan göra en livsstilsförändring och börja med fysisk aktivitet. Resultaten i studien visar att samtliga deltagare motiverats av positiv inre och yttre motivation som unga och att den autonoma motivationsfaktorn ”glädje” är viktigaste delen för dem både när de var yngre och som vuxen. Positiv motivation och en fördomsfri miljö fick dem att fortsätta träna efter livsstilsförändringen.

Abstract [en]

Health-related diseases and medical costs in society are growing. Much of this could be prevented with healthier lifestyles. At the same time, it appears that children in schools have less motivation for physical activity than before. This study wants to examine whether the internal, external and autonomous motivation factors with some adults to make lifestyle changes are the same that motivated them to be physically active as young. The aim is also to study what motivates these adults continue to be physically active. Three semi-structured qualitative studies were carried out on a training and exercise facilities in central Sweden. The target group was three middle-aged women who were physical active as young but have had a break and then gone through a lifestyle change and start getting physical active again. The results of the study shows that all participants were motivated by positive internal and external motivation that young and that autonomous motivation like joy is the most important part for both when they were younger, and as an adult. Positive motivation and an open-minded environment prompted them to continue training after the lifestyle change.
