Abstract [sv]

Huvudsyftet med den här studien var att undersöka vilka egenupplevda faktorer som vana motionärer håller som viktiga för sin egen träning. Undersökningen ägde rum på en av Friskis & Svettis anläggningar. Studiedesignen var en undersökande studie. I en sådan studie är målet att förklara människors egna upplevelser och deras åsikter. Det genomfördes 15 individuella halvstruktuerade intervjuer med regelbundet tränande medlemmar på Friskis & Svettis. Alla motionärer ansåg att det var viktigt att kunna välja vilken intensitet de skulle träna på. Majoriteten ansåg också att det var viktigt att få välja vilken typ av träning de skulle utföra. De flesta som tränar regelbundet upplevde känslor som glädje, att det var kul och att det var roligt under tiden eller efter de tränade. Ledaren ansågs vara en viktig person och att han eller hon kunde påverka träningen genom att ”vara medryckande” och ”ha utstrålning”. Musiken var också viktigt för inspirationen, att orka med lite extra. Friskis & Svettis idé om att erbjuda motionärerna lustfylld träning uppfyller det som motionärerna ansåg vara viktigt i den här undersökningen.

Abstract [en]

Objectives: The aim of this study is to investigate what self-perceived factors that influence people’s regular training habits.

Methods: The study is based on a qualitative study design. Fifteen interviews were conducted at regularly physical active people and took place at a Friskis & Svettis training facility in a middle-east city in Sweden.

Results: All of the regular training exercisers felt it was important to be able to choose intensity and type of workout. The majority also reported feelings of happiness, joy and fun during and after their training sessions. When inactive people tend to report lack of money and no time to exercise, regular active people seem to plan for their training and also seem to think that the price paid is worth the money spent. The leader was seen as a person of inspiration along with music and was also important for the experience of the training session.

Conclusions: Friskis & Svettis motto, to offer people joyful exercise and easy accessible training facilities meet the results of this study.
