Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att belysa hur idrottsföreningsaktiva 65+ beskriver erfarenheter avfysisk aktivitet och dess värde, och hur genusfaktorn skiljer grupperna åt. Teoretiskreferensram: En kombination av holistisk ansats, Bourdieus teori, genusteori ochsocialkonstruktivism. Metod: Idrottsföreningsaktiva 65+ rekryterades i denna studie,där damer kom från en golfförening och herrar från en frigymnastikförening. Totalt 3grupper deltog i denna studie där fokusgruppsintervjuer tillämpades för insamling avdata under två tillfällen. Dessutom skrev informanterna en dagboksanteckning, dettaför att i möte nummer två skulle diskussioner utgå de anteckningarna.Fokusgruppsintervjuerna spelades in med hjälp av digitala verktyg som sedantranskriberades noga och därefter analyserades med hjälp av kvalitativinnehållsanalys. Resultat: Analysen genererade två kategorier och sexunderkategorier, där resultatet visade att värdet av fysisk aktivitet handlar omfrämjandet av hälsa och det sociala umgänget, vilket var viktigt för de bådagrupperna. Samtidigt spelade det i detta avseende också roll vilka erfarenheter varjeinformant hade, detta då resultatet visade att de tyckte om att utföra fysiska aktiviteterutifrån eget intresse, behov, samt den miljö de befann sig i kombination med synen påkroppsideal. Det fanns tydliga indikationer på hur damerna och herrarna skilde sig åtgällande engagemang i fysiska aktiviteter som bland annat påverkas av smak ocherfarenheter beträffande sociala och kulturella aspekter.
