Träningsmotivation som bränsle: Träningsinstruktörers motivation för träning och instruktion
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this thesis is to find where and how training instructors find their workout motivation and to investigate the behavior they use to motivate others. In order to define the topic and stick to the relevant information two questions were elected. What motivation orientation drives the participants in their own training? What behavior is reflected in their role as an instructor? Interviews with 10 individuals were performed. A semi-structured interview guide was designed to give participants a chance to talk freely about the subject, but through structured questions stick to the topic. Interview responses were analyzed and interpreted with the Theory of self-determination. The results show that the training instructors/coaches found their motivation for self-training through partial goals and fitness goals. Some were run by autonomous orientation, the majority of controlled orientation and one by impersonal orientation. All interview candidates met the requirements for instructing through an autonomous-supportive behavior to some degree. Only three participants satisfied all the requirements. Notably, these were the oldest of the participants.
