Abstract [en]

This qualitative study investigated what factors influenced older adults to motivate themselves to continue to be pshysical active in their later life. Six individuals, both men and women in the ages of 65-89, were interviewed. The interviews were analysed by informal content analysis. The results showed that there is a certain group who had a strong will to lead a long, well-conditioned and sound life. Although, the seniors are getting older, they continue to make active choices about physical activity on a daily basis. The results also showed different dimensions of motivation, where the seniors wishes to have the opportunity of ageing, to be strong and have a good life until the end. The motivation was both psychological and physiological, and previous experience was too an important aspect for an active life.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka vad som motiverar seniorer till motion. Studien bygger på sex informella intervjuer, varav fyra kvinnor och två män i åldrarna 65-89 år deltog. Den insamlade datan analyserades med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultatet pekade på att gruppen av individer hade samma uttalade strävan mot att leva ett friskare och sundare liv, och som trots stigande ålder dagligen gör aktiva val till motion. Resultatet visade även på olika dimensioner av motivation, där seniorernas vilja att få åldras, och vara starka och orka ända in i slutet tycks vara de huvudsakliga drivkrafterna. Drivkrafterna visade sig vara både psykologiska och fysiologiska samt att den tidigare erfarenheten spelade stor roll och att den samtidigt la grunden till ett aktivt leverne.
