Abstract [en]

This study is about parents with young children and how parenthood affects their personal physical exercise habits and what would be done to facilitate those habits. Research has shown that a large part of the Swedish adult population do not exercise enough. Besides it has been shown that parents exercise less than adults without children. According to research, parenthood changes the life situation and with this occurs factors that complicates the possibilty to exercise regularly. The aim of this study was therefore to analyse parents’ view of and approach to their own exercise. This with the expectations to create knowledge that could be useful for local sports clubs about how they can operate to attract more parents to exercise in their organisations. Questions about how exercise habits changes when becoming a parent, what obstacles that can emerge and what is requested from the parents to be able to exercise were examined. The data was collected through means of qualitative interviews of parents. The results showed that parenthood involves a change of the life situation and with it many obstacles occurs such as changed prioritys, childcare and lack of time. Additionally to this parents feel neglected as a group and requests solutions of their obstacles. Therefore, the sportsclubs’ need to adapt so they can provide parents with their requests.
