Exploring Motives of Ironman Triathletes Using the Transtheoretical Model (pp. 35-52) $45.00
Authors:  Suzannah Mork Armentrout
Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to gain a better understanding of the motives of Ironman triathletes and how the motives further explain the components of the transtheoretical model. Male and female Ironman triathletes (N = 20) were individually interviewed for 1-to-2 hours regarding their motives for participation. Data was analyzed using thematic analysis, a method for identifying and analyzing patterns or themes (Braun & Clark, 2006). Academic rigor and structure were addressed through the noting of ideas and possible themes throughout analysis, prolonged engagement, and member checking (Braun & Clark, 2006; Creswell, 1998). The findings revealed additional information on the motives that further explain the various aspects of the transtheoretical model that pertain to the maintenances stage, the change processes (reinforcement management, helping relationships, counterconditioning/stimulus control) and decisional balance, self-efficacy, and temptation. The discussion explains how practitioners can use the information to help triathletes strengthen their motivation to continue training.
