Motivational Factors in CrossFit® Training Participation
Objective: We examined motivational factors that influence adherence to CrossFit® training participation among persons engaging in this exercise modality. Methods: Adults over 18 years old with more than 3 months of CrossFit® training experience were asked to participate in this study (N = 737). Participants completed the Exercise Motivation Inventory, a validated measure (factor structure across sex) designed to investigate individuals' motives for participating in exercise. Results: Pearson correlations showed statistically significant correlations between duration and frequency of CrossFit® training participation and items on the Exercise Motivation Inventory. Conclusions: These identified factors appear to support movement toward persons being more intrinsically motivated toward exercise behavior as indicated by their reported reasons for adhering to this type of exercise.
