Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the recreational flow experiences of individuals doing functional training through different variables. The sample of the research consists of a total of 114 active functional training individuals, 62 women and 52 men. Recreational Flow Experience Scale (RADS) was used as a data collection tool. Individuals were asked about demographic characteristics such as gender, age, height, weight, monthly income and sports history. Before analyzing the data, a normality test was performed and it was determined that it did not show a normal distribution. For non-normally distributed data, non-parametric tests, Mann Whitney U test and Kruskal Wallis tests, were used. According to the research findings, while no statistically significant difference could be obtained in variables such as gender, height, weight, sports history, statistical significance was tested in the age variable. As a result, It is seen that the statistical mean scores of individuals between the ages of 28 and 36 are higher than those of individuals between the ages of 20-27 and over the age of 45. No significant difference was detected in the sports history variable, but the average score of those with 9 or more sports years was found to be higher than other years. In this context, it would not be wrong to say that as the sports year increases, flow experiences will also increase positively.
