Positive lifestyle choices were on full display Saturday at the Healthy Living Expo at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks.

Visitors to the event browsed through booths showcasing products and services devoted to wellness, while those who came ready to work up a sweat had access to fitness demonstrations hosted by organizations including Altru Family YMCA and Choice Health and Fitness.

Kaija Dockter, 16, was one of several who visited the Choice booth to go through the basic steps of TRX Rip Training, an exercise regimen which makes use of a bar and elastic cable to increase mobility and strength. Choice personal trainer Zeb Miller led the demonstration and said the training method was suitable for fitness-minded people of any age and ability level.
