Spinner ja Jame-Balancer®

for Cross-country skiers

“The most important single factor in cross country skiing is balance. Balance in turn is greatly affected by the condition of the feet and ankles. With Jame Balancer you can daily maintain and improve the condition of these areas to improve balance.”
– Reijo Jylhä, Previous Head Coach of Cross Country Skiing


With Jame Balancer you can combine balance exercises with sport specific muscle training. Examples include the dynamic and static training of core muscles and the muscles in and around hips, buttocks, thighs, ankles and feet.

The exercises done with Jame Balancer under the instruction of coaches or physiotherapists are beneficial in the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries (particularly the injuries and stress injuries of the knee, ankle or foot).

Because the feet are fully stabilised in the ski shoes, it is particularly important for the skier to improve the condition of the muscle groups in the feet and ankles.


In order to make the exercises more challenging, get Jame-soft (made out of cellular foam plastic) that you can use on top of Jame-Balancer.
