Studies on youth physical activity have been growing out of the agenda to enrich literature thus far having been predominated by the epidemiological research. Epidemiological studies provide insightful knowledge about the youth’s predispositions and competences for participating in physical activity. Despite the important contribution, epidemiological studies fail to take into account young people’s lived experience regarding physical activity. This is especially true when more information is needed to look at their particular experience of social interruption as a result of transnational mobility. The current study sought to understand how youth make sense of life events regarding physical activity throughout the process of transnational mobility. More specifically, seventeen Indonesian youth participated in the interviews. Open ended interviews were conducted to specifically obtain their embodied experiences, lived experience of doing physical activity within contexts of different nationals. All recorded interviews were verbatim transcribed for further phenomenological analysis. Four themes emerged from the analysis including (1) physical activity within the Indonesian and New Zealand contexts, (2) comparison, (3) facilitators and barriers, and (4) adaptation. Their physical activity experiences intersect with home country historical backgrounds, immigration events, and acculturation processes.
