In 2009 Sherpa started the project "Healthy lifestyle". Through this project, Sherpa aimed to make a policy on health, sports and exercise and implement this policy across the organization. However, people with brain injury were not sufficiently represented in this project. Therefore, the aim of the current study was to clarify the expectations of people with brain injury regarding an active lifestyle. To provide insight in the determinants attitude, social influence and self-efficacy the ASE-model was used. In this study qualitative analysis was used and 9 semi-structured interviews with people with brain injury have been taken to obtain data. The results from this study show that exercise is important to people with brain injury, but less important than their mental recovery. Furthermore, people with and without an active lifestyle stated that exercise was important to them, however they didn’t exactly know the implications of an active lifestyle. Their behavior was not influenced by other people. They were supported by Sherpa in their everyday life, but not to have a more active lifestyle. Therefore, it is necessary for Sherpa to find a more appropriate way to provide people with brain injury with knowledge about an active lifestyle.
