With less than 24 hours till #Santapaws arrives it’s only fair I introduce you to Tesla! Tesla is your typical 10 week old puppy – sweet, cuddly, loveable, playful - but she is extremely smart and sassy! She is very observant and picks up what other dogs do. She watches them intently and then mimics their actions. She loves a good game of tug and when she gets the zoomies, WATCH OUT!!!
She is living with other dogs and they are teaching her the ways of the world. Potty outside, sit for treats, sleep quietly in her crate and take lots of naps. She is working on her housebreaking and loves to go outside with the other dogs. She still uses potty pads overnight or when her foster mom is gone for long hours.
Tesla needs a home with at least 1 other dog and will need an owner who is not afraid to give boundaries. While Tesla is as cute as can be, she has the potential to be very sassy and training classes will be a must with her.
She craves attention and needs to make out with you every morning before going outside and every night before bed…and about 45 times throughout the day! She loves chew toys, plastic bottles and peanut butter Kongs.
Tesla is great with everyone she meets, loves dogs and would probably be fine -although annoying - with a cat. She’s very curious and everyone needs to be her friend!
Tesla is going to be at our event tomorrow in @chicagopitbulls kissing booth , some come say hello , dress to impress in your finest collar and leash for pictures with Santa Paws , and donate to CBBR . We’ll be taking donations all month long and tomorrow all donation participants will receive a #free goodie bag! So come on down and help make Tesla and Roscoe’s Christmas a great one! @kriserspets @krisersroscoevillage #krisers#roscoevillagechicago#puppies#grandopening#roscoevillage#chicago#adopt#santa#christmas#dontbeagrinch#adoptdontshop#pitbull#give#donate#santapaws#santapics#freesantapics#meetsanta#lanetech

Schedule your half hour #glowup before time runs out and say goodbye to pimples and hello to compliments! #comeinleaveconfident
We feel fortunate to have days that take us all over our amazing city! Today, we were #downtown at City Hall discussing our plans for the upcoming year. But our plans are incomplete without your input! Feel free to let us know suggestions for events for residents and support for business owners so that we can effectively work towards a sustainable community. We’re open to all feedback. Comment below, keep your eyes/ ears open for upcoming round tables, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to hear from you! 💡
[Therex Thursday!] 🏋️♂️
Check your bridge! Do you look like pic #1 or pic #2 ??!! 🤔
Keys to a good bridge:
✅ Feet flat and pointing forward
✅ Lift the midsection off the mat, squeezing the glutes
🚫 Make sure to avoid extending the low back, your body should be in a straight line!
Bridges are a great beginners exercise to activate the glute muscles before progressing to higher level exercise!
Try it and let us know what you think! 💪
Brows, Beets, Battlestar Galactica. Yearly touch up for this babe! What better way to spend a Thursday than by makin’ brows and joking around about ‘The Office’? 😅 Swipe to see her Before photo from December of last year. ♥ Only three 2018 appointments left! Get yours at micropennytattoo.com. Gift certificates also available for the holidays 💗
Time to reveal more 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣ kitchen trends!
The first kitchen trend is STORAGE WALLS! Have you seen this?! A storage wall is what it sounds like - it’s a wall with floor to ceiling cabinets. And to make up for the loss of countertops there will be a larger island. I mean who doesn’t want more kitchen storage and a large island?!
The second trend is BEADBOARD. I’m sure you’ve seen beadboard but didn’t know what it’s called! It’s narrow wood planks lined up and in between each wood plank is a little indentation called a "bead". Use beadboard as a backsplash, on the base of an island, on cabinets or to cover entire walls. This trend can bring some style even to the plainest white box kitchens!
How are you feeling about the 2019 trends so far? Share your thoughts!
Let’s meet the babes of @chicagopitbulls to get you excited for picture day ! Meet Roscoe! He's a young, sweet Chihuahua mix boy looking for a forever home. Roscoe is about 2 years old. He's good with dogs of all sizes, he's crate trained, pee pad trained and even waits to go potty outside. He walks well on a leash and is a well behaved boy. He tends to be a bit shy when meeting new people, but warms up quickly after getting to know you. He's good with kids but since he can scare easily he may do best in a lower key home. Roscoe will make a great addition to any family. He's ready to meet you! Apply today!!! If you are interested in adopting any of our dogs, please visit our website www.CBBR.org to complete an application to expedite the process.
And just between you and me , he gives the best cuddles 😏 . So if you don’t want #free pictures with #santa#chicago still come by to meet Roscoe , and let him steal your heart !

Let’s talk LANDING MECHANICS! 🤔 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
There are two major aspects of injury prevention...body awareness/mechanics and strength. The alignment of the body when we jump and land can tell us a lot!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
1️⃣ Knee Collapse: often a sign of weak hip muscles, in particular the gluteus medius (glut med) which is responsible for stabilizing the hips and controlling the knee from caving inward. However, also a sign of poor motor control to keep the knee pointing forward during dynamic activity. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
2️⃣ Foot rolling inward (over-pronation): indicates weakness of intrinsic foot muscles that help promote a stable arch and provide a base of support for stabilizing your whole body. When the arch muscles are weak the foot is flat and tends to roll inward, triggering a chain reaction of the knee also collapsing inward. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
These compensations during movement often result in increased stress on the knees during jumping/landing and change in direction movements. If not addressed, injuries can occur. 😳⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
✅ So how do we fix these movement faults?!! Check in with one of our personal trainers or physical therapists and we can show you how! Here at TFI we will create a customized plan to help you move safer, more efficiently, and improve your athletic performance!
