Abstract [en]

This study focuses on leadership within the wellness and fitness context. The aim of this study was to describe and analyse Swedish group fitness instructors' views on training, health and body; and also to understand these views in terms of glocalization -the localisation of global ideas. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six female instructors working with pre-choreographed group training concepts which originated in New Zealand and have spread through the golbal fitness community. The analysis used a theoretical framework based on Pronger's ideas about ”the technology of physical fitness” (2002). The results suggested that the instructors' views were consistent with the five texts that constitute ”the technology of fysical fitness” and that successful instructors have extensive knowledge of physiology, good communication skills and lively personalities. Overall, the instructors adapted the global pre-choreographed concepts to their local context and in balancing the ”inner” and ”outer” aspects of health they devoted less attention to body form and appearance.
