Research on the Factors Related to Leisure-time Physical Activities among Marriage Immigrants
The purpose of this research was to explore the experiences and factors related to leisure-time physical activities among marriage immigrants. To this end, in-depth interview was conducted on four marriage immigrants from Mainland China, four from Vietnam, and two from Indonesia. The research findings showed that walking, mountain-hiking, swimming and sit-ups, and bike-riding were the physical activities that informants participated in most often. As for the factors influencing their participation decisions, although past cultural experiences had in some way affected informants’ attitudes toward leisure, health promotion, and physical activities, however, as time moved on, the influences of past cultural experiences declined, and the living condition at current stage including working condition, duties for the family and personal health became the most critical factors influencing informants’ participation in physical activities. Based on research findings, it was suggested that leisure providers should make good use of existing local infrastructures to organize low-cost physical activity programs, with emphasis on family getting together as well as community development.
