Women's leisure time sport participation was examined in relation to resistance, bodies and community. Fifteen interviews were conducted with participants and coaches in two all-women's triathlon training groups in Austin, Texas. Qualitative methods and grounded theory guided the interviewing and data analyses. The results indicate that all-women's leisure time sport groups are capable of providing an atmosphere for women, particularly sport novices, to recreate and reappropriate their bodies and their sport.
