Sedentary lifestyle is one of the biggest problems of
modern society. If we want to change this, and to
encourage people to embrace an active lifestyle, it is
necessary to investigate reasons why do people exercise.
But, it is not possible to have the complete picture of
motivational structure if we do not investigate motivation
of those who do not exercise at all, or those people who
exercise only temporarily and irregularly that is the
subject of this investigation. The aim of this study was to
establish motivational structures and to investigate gender
differences between 41 men and 39 women, 18-35 years
old, who are periodically engaged in recreational
activities. The Croatian version of Exercise motivation
inventory (EMI-2) was applied to evaluate 14 motives:
weight management, ill-health avoidance, revitalization,
appearance, social recognition, stress management,
positive health, strength, enjoyment, affiliation,
competition, nimbleness, and challenge. Results showed
medium intensity of participants' motivation, and
significant differences were obtained on 6 motives.
Women periodically exercise because of health,
nimbleness and weight control; the least important
reasons for them are competition and social recognition.
The male participants are most motivated by strenght
achievement, health and nibleness and least important
motives for them are health pressure and social pressure.
