Examining the relationship between grit, intrinsic motivation and achieving exercise goals (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att (a) undersöka grit och inre motivations prediktiva förmåga till att uppnå motionsmål samt att (b) undersöka om inre motivation hade en indirekt effekt på motionsmål genom grit i en medieringsanalys. Studien var en longitudinell studie med två mättillfällen där Grit-s, BREQ-4 och GLTEQ besvarades med fem veckors intervall. 53 motionärer, 23 män och 30 kvinnor i åldrarna 18-81(M=36,97 SD=18.90), deltog. Resultatet visade att både grit och inre motivation predicerade uppnådda motionsmål. Inre motivation predicerade uppnådda motionsmål till högre utsträckning. Vidare visade medieringsanalysen ingen signifikant indirekt effekt. Sammanfattningsvis belyser studiens resultat att aktiva motionärer med inre motivation motionerar mer frekvent och uppnår motionsmål till högre grad än motionärer med grit. Resultatet kan anses användbart för att förstå betydelsen av inre motivation i samband med motion samt hur inre motivation kan vara relaterat till grit.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to (a) investigate the predictive ability of grit and intrinsic motivation to achieve exercise goals and (b) examine whether intrinsic motivation had an indirect effect on exercise goals through grit in a mediation analysis. The study was a longitudinal study with two measurement cases where Grit-s, BREQ-4 and GLTEQ were answered two times between a five-week interval. 53 exercisers, 23 men and 30 women aged 18-81 (M = 36.97 SD = 18.90) participated. The result showed that both grit and intrinsic motivation predicted achieved exercise goals. Intrinsic motivation predicted achieved exercise goals to a greater extent. Furthermore, the mediation analysis showed no significant indirect effect. To sum up, the study's results show that active exercisers with intrinsic motivation exercise more frequently and achieve exercise goals to a greater extent than exercisers with grit. The result can be considered useful for understanding the importance of intrinsic motivation related to exercise and how intrinsic motivation can be related to grit.
