We’ve taken a beautiful piece of wood and shaped this balance trainer for you for everyday exercise. Activate your feet – it’ll improve your mood, and the natural wood is pleasant to the touch.
Worried it’ll take up too much space at home? It won’t – just prop it up in the corner after exercising. Just between us though: Once you try it, you won’t want to put it away.
- Exercise healthy walking.
- Activate your arches, toes, ankles and knees.
- Exercise your deep stabilization system.
- Train your balance and coordination.
- Stretch and strengthen your muscles from your feet to your abdomen and back.
- Exercising with the trainer is fun, and it’s a great stress-relief aid.
A simple exercise that activates the arch and gives you back your balance
The balance trainer is our favorite for two reasons: Exercising on it is simple and it really helps. Try it for yourself – you’ll master it in just 5 minutes.
Stand up on the balance trainer (don’t be afraid to hold on to something else). Each step and bend of the knee will benefit the body:
- You’ll activate your arches, toes, ankles and whole body.
- You’ll be incorporating your deep stabilization system.
- You’ll be training balance and coordination.
- You’ll clear your head and relax.
Your daily micro-dose of yoga. A moment for yourself, something we all deserve.
An easy exercise, even during a work day
You can use this exercise aid designed by physiotherapists in 4 positions: flat side up, round side up, with your feet lengthwise and crosswise
Set up the balance trainer next to your desk, for example. During the quick exercise, you’ll stretch out, activate your muscles and treat yourself to a moment without your computer.
“I used a balance trainer in my practice as a physiotherapist. But I wanted something better. A pleasant exercise aid made out of natural wood. It’s a joy to exercise on it.”
Lukáš Klimpera, physiotherapist
How to exercise: Even beginners can do it
No complex movements are involved. All you need are simple steps and knee-bends. The exercise has only 4 rules:
- Make sure your foot is positioned correctly. The free e-book on The Most Frequent Foot Problems will help.
- Use the trainer in different ways. Flat side up or down, with your foot both lengthwise and crosswise.
- Don’t be afraid to use the wall for support. You’ll learn later to exercise without it.
Choose a suitable difficulty. For starters, you can just step on; later you can stand on one foot, close your eyes or take a few steps.

According to the research, Ahinsa shoes allow your foot to engage just like when you walk barefoot. By contrast, ordinary shoes restrict your feet and block their natural sensory contact with the ground.
