Purpose: The purpose of the thesis was to investigate how a ten-week physical activity intervention could affect the general well-being of employees from a sedentary office environment. Method: 16 employees participated in a ten-week intervention which implemented physical activity in their workplace. To measure the participant’s well-being, three surveys was distributed to all. One before, during, and after the intervention. Furthermore, were six interviews with individuals conducted after the intervention ended. Results: The employees created awareness of the importance of being physically active, and experienced changes in their physical and mental well-being. Conclusion: Well-being is an individual feeling, which is affected by external elements changing a person’s needs.
