Abstract [en]

The study has focused on fitness instructors and their leadership in grouptraining. The aim of the study was to describe and analyze what swedish group fitness instructors do, why they do it and also to understand the motives behind their actions. The study has included five interwies, with a total of 9 participants. The theoretical framework was based on Lars-Magnus Engströms work about "logic of physical activities" that draw on Bourdieus theory of habitus. The analysis of the results has partly been based on his work, but also on previous research in the field about leadership in grouptraining. The results showed that the instructors have two main focus: that the participants gets output from the effort and that the instructors want to create a fun experience for the participants. The factors behind their actions are education, the context they work in and what kind of training the instructors like themselves. The overall conclusion is that the fitness context seems rather limited in itself and a further education of group fitness instructors would be useful.
