Get To Know Local Outdoor Fitness Company: E3 Twin Ports, LLC

Taking advantage of the great weather in Duluth we went out with Jodi, owner of E3 Twin Ports, to explore Kingsbury Creek up to the Superior Hiking Trail! Jodi took us to a location none of us had been to in West Duluth and guided us through the hike. Once we were ready for a break Jodi had us stand in a circle to go over things we can do in our daily life to have happier and healthier lives. This included actions inspired by TED talks like snaps, hugs and cheering that left us feeling refreshed. Scroll down to learn more about Jodi and E3 Twin Ports.
