Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to identify exerciser athlete’s motivational orientation, coping strategies used and stressors that primarily is perceived in gym training. The study also studied gender differences in relation to motivation orientation, coping strategies and stressors. A survey was conducted with a quantitative design. The study included 118 participants (43 women and 75 men) aged 18 - 42. The results showed no difference regarding motivation orientation between participants. Participants were predominantly emotion-focused current choice of coping strategy. The three most perceived stressors were "Errors," "My performance" and "Injuries." Furthermore, women tended to higher perceive stressors such as “My shape”, “My weight/strength”, “Crowd”, “That instructors are present” and “Others at the gym” than men. For future research it would be interesting to examine the perceived stressors, coping strategies, and motivational orientation between individuals of different ages and number of years training at the gym. In order to determine if age and experience act as an influencing factor. 

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att kartlägga motionärsidrottares användande av motivations- orientering, copingstrategier och vilka stressorer som främst användes och uppfattades vid gymträning. Slutligen studerades skillnader mellan kvinnor och män i relation till motivationsorientering, copingstrategier och stressorer. Undersökning genomfördes med en kvantitativ design, i form av en enkätundersökning. Studien omfattade 118 deltagare (43 kvinnor och 75 män) i åldern 18- 42. Resultatet visade ingen skillnad rörande motivationsorientering mellan deltagarna. Deltagarna var huvudsakligen emotionsfokuserade gällande val av copingstrategi. De tre mest uppfattade stressorerna var “Jag gör fel”, “Min prestation” och “Skador”. Vidare påvisades att kvinnorna tenderade att uppfatta stressorer såsom ”Min form”, ”Min vikt/styrka”, ”Åskådare”, Att instruktörer är närvarande” och ”Andra på gymmet” mer än män. För framtida forskning skulle det vara av intresse att undersöka uppfattade stressorer, copingstrategier och motivationsorientering mellan individer i olika åldrar och antal träningsår på gym, i fall ålder och erfarenhet fungerar som en påverkande faktor.
