Motives for a participation in football fitness : a qualitative study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Fotboll fitness är fotboll som hälsofrämjande aktivitet med mer fokus på glädje och gemenskap än taktik och skicklighet. Syftet med studien var att undersöka de bakomliggande motiven till ett deltagande i aktiviteten fotboll fitness. I studien deltog 12 intervjupersoner, tre kvinnor och nio män i åldrarna 25-70 (M=46.6, SD=12). Alla deltagare hade varit aktiva i fotboll fitness minst en månad innan påbörjad studie samt alla hade tidigare spelat fotboll. En semistrukturerad intervjuguide användes. Resultatet klassificerades in i tre huvudteman av motiv för deltagande; gemenskap, positiva effekter av fotboll fitness samt upplägget för fotboll fitness. Gemenskap betyder att deltagarna upplever den sociala tillhörigheten som en av anledningarna till att de deltar i fotboll fitness. Under temat positiva effekter av fotboll fitness berättade deltagarna om att både psykologiska och fysiologiska hälsoeffekter var motiv för deltagande. Även det ostrukturerade upplägget var något som, enligt deltagarna, främjade deltagande i aktiviteten. Baserat på resultatet från föreliggande studie rekommenderas en aktivitet som främjar gemenskap, lyfter de positiva effekter av aktiviteten samt har ett liknande upplägg då detta visat på motivation till deltagande.
