Abstract [en]

Background: Exercise dependence is a behavior where some people get very strong feelings for their training. This dependency becomes a problem when it affects individuals’ life in a negative way. Individuals with low self-esteem have been found to have an increased risk for exercise dependence. Self-estem is associated with Self-compassion, which is to have compassion with oneself in pain and difficult periods. Self-compassion has been shown to reduce stress and stress has been shown to influence the onset of burnout. Objectives: The purpose with this study was to examine whether there is a connection between exercise dependence, self-compassion, perceived stress and burnout Method: A total 102 questionnaires were distributed at two local gyms in Karlstad. The study involved 61 men and 41 women and the age distribution was between 19-58 years. The questionnaire featured a self-constructed variant in which respondents answered questions about their training. The other part of the questionnaire contained, Exercise depedence scale-21, Perceived stress scale, Shirom Melamed Burnout Measure and Self-compassion scale: Result: Exercise dependence had a positive correlation with burnout and perceived stress and negative correlation with self-compassion. Self-compassion was negatively correlated with perceived stress and burnout. Perceived stress was positive correlated with burnout.
