Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka vilka motiv utifrån Self-Determination Theory (SDT) som är främst förekommande samt vilken intensitet och frekvens gymmotionärer har till att motionera. Detta har undersökts genom självskattningsformulär där instrumenten Goal Content for Exercise Questionnaire (GCEQ) och Godin Leisure Time Exercise Questionnaire(GLTEQ) har använts. Deltagarna för studien (n=164) bestod av både män (n=82)och kvinnor (n=82) i fyra ålderskategorier yngrevuxna, vuxna, äldre vuxna och äldre. Resultatet visar att inre målorienteringar är starkare motiv än yttre för ökad motionsintensitet och frekvens. Resultatet visar även att män har en högre frekvens än kvinnor inom ansträngande motion. De två yngre ålderskategorierna har en högre frekvens och träningsintensitet än de två äldre ålderskategorierna. Slutsatserna visar på att äldre har en inre motivation men att de yngre har både inre- och yttre motiv för motionsdeltagande. Detta visade sig genom antaganden om en individ har ett uppgifts- eller egoorienterat beteende.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study are to investigate what motives that are more represented, and what intensity and frequency gym exercisers have to exercise by Self-Determination Theory. This has been investigated by a self-questionnaire instrument, Goal Content for Exercise Questionnaire (GCEQ) and Godin Leisure Time Exercise Questionnaire (GLTEQ). The respondents (n=164) were Men (n=82) and Women (n=82) in four age categories younger, adults, old adults, and seniors.The results shown that intrinsic goal orientations were stronger motives than extrinsic for increased exercise intensity and frequency. The results also shown that Men has a higher frequency than Women by strenuous exercise. The two younger age groups shown a higher frequency and exercise intensity than the two older ones. The conclusion shows that older individuals have an intrinsic motivation while the younger has both an intrinsic and extrinsic motivation to exercise participation. These assumptions are based on an individual being task- or ego oriented.
