Juho Matalamäki, Jani Erkkonen ja Anne Pakkanen kannustavat kaikkia kokeilemaan uusia lainattavia liikuntavälineitä. | Juho Matalamäki, Jani Erkkonen and Anne Pakkanen encourage everyone to try the new loanable exercise equipment.

For example, kettlebells, basketballs, footballs, dumbbells, exercise balls, Frisbee golf discs, Mölkky-games and even snowshoes can now be borrowed from SeAMK Library at Kampustalo.

The exercise equipment is primarily intended for the use of SeAMK students and staff, but anyone owning SeAMK Library’s library card can borrow the equipment.

– The loan period for exercise equipment is one week. Borrowing and returning takes place through the library’s info desk during customer service opening hours. The equipment cannot be reserved, and the loan cannot be renewed, tells Information Service Assistant Anne Pakkanen.

Try out and get excited!

According to Jani Erkkonen, Executive Director of Student Union SAMO, the well-being of SeAMK’s students and staff is important to both SAMO and SeAMK, and they actively encourage students and staff to try different sports. Borrowing of exercise equipment makes it possible to get to know different sports at a low threshold.

– SeAMK Campus and for example Seinäjoki Arena and Sports-Swimming Hall have good facilities as well as grass and sand fields and park areas to play and do different sports together, Erkkonen advises.

Student union SAMO and SeAMK Library jointly manage the loaning and user guidance of exercise equipment.

– SAMO is responsible for the equipment and guidance on their use and SeAMK Library for the loaning, says Anne Pakkanen.

SAMO also gladly receives wishes for exercise equipment.
