**ONLY** because my son broke his ankle!
Such a fun place to take the kids and get their energy out.
Loved it…kids had fun and the place was clean
The kids absolutely loved it and we rent twice in one week. The only downside was an absolutely filthy bathroom. It was filthy to the point that one 9 and one 10 year old boy came out gagging. When my husband told a worker, he said he didn’t get paid enough to clean that bathroom.
Very nice place for jumpingggg!

Buick LaCrosse won’t start – causes and how to fix it
Buick LaCrosse is a reliable road companion, but its a machine with hundreds of interconnected parts, and like any other machine it sometimes fail to deliver normal operation. In this article we go through most common causes of LaCrosse breakdown and how you can fix the problem.
The most common causes that hinders normal starting operation of your Buick LaCrosse are dead key fob battery, dead 12v battery, corrosion on battery terminals, bad alternator, clogged fuel filter, broken starter, blown fuse, empty gas tank, immobilizer error or any fault in the electrical system.
1. Weak Battery
If your LaCrosse’s engine won’t crank or cranks very slowly, then the most likely culprit is weak or dead 12v battery. Investigating more closely and doing a battery voltage test will clarify whether the starting problem is due to the battery. A test can be done to measure the voltage between the battery poles, check the acid level and assess the condition of the starter battery.
If a new car battery has been installed, the battery may not have yet reached its full capacity. There is nothing to worry about. A new battery only develops its full capacity over time.
You can test the voltage of your Buick LaCrosse battery using multimeter on positive and negative terminals provided under the hood.
Test 12v battery
The voltage of the battery on your Buick LaCrosse can be measured precisely with a multimeter. Before the test, the multimeter is set to the voltage range of the battery and connected to its plus and minus poles. Successful testing of the car battery, i.e. checking the voltage, usually results in values of approx. 12 to 13 volts. Values above 14 or below 11.5 volts require an expert assessment of the condition of the car battery. Because the battery may have a defect with these measured values and must be replaced.
Jump start Buick LaCrosse
If dead battery is the reason for the breakdown of your LaCrosse, you can easily jump start it using jumper cables and a healthy battery from another vehicle, or using a battery booster if available.
First connect red cable to the positive terminal of your LaCrosse’s dead battery, then to the positive terminal of donor battery. Next connect black cable to the negative terminal of donor battery, then to the bare metal in the engine bay of your LaCrosse. Start the donor vehicle and then your LaCrosse. Remove the cables in reverse order.

2. Corrosion on battery
Corrosion on the contacts of your car battery leads to loss of contact and reduced current flow, which means that your engine can no longer start properly.
To know if your LaCrosse’s starting problems are from dirty battery contacts, you need to investigate them. If you lift the rubber covers over the two battery terminals, you can check the terminals for corrosion. If you discover white deposits or silvery-green deposits, but no further cracks or damage, you do not have to replace the battery, just clean it.
Clean battery corrosion
To clean the battery on your Buick LaCrosse, you have to remove the pole cables first, which requires no special knowledge, just a little concentration, as the order is very important. First remove the black cable from the negative pole. If the pole clamp is very tight, you can open it with pliers. We advise against using metal pliers, but if you use them, you must make sure that you do not touch any other parts of the body. Next you can unplug the red positive pole cable. Once the battery has been removed from the circuit, you can start cleaning the corroded battery. After cleaning, reconnect the terminals.
3. Weak key fob battery
If your LaCrosse has push start/stop button, then its possible that your vehicle may not start due to weak key fob battery. Don’t worry, you can still start your vehicle – the battery is only used to send the signal for locking/unlocking. If the key fob battery is empty, the door no longer locks or unlocks at the push of a button. The doors must then be opened manually. The immobilizer is controlled by a passive transponder. Passive means, among other things, that the transponder in the key does not need its own power source.
How to start Buick LaCrosse with dead key fob battery
If you have a model of LaCrosse which only has a key fob with start/stop button and no place to insert a key, then try placing your key fob as close to the start/stop button as you can and then start the vehicle. If it doesn’t work, then look in your vehicle’s operational manual for exact location of key fob placement, as it may vary depending on model.
Tip: You can try starting your LaCrosse with its second key. It will also rule out any other problem with the first key, for example, water damage.
4. Broken starter motor
A starter is a motor for starting the engine of your LaCrosse. The average life of a starter motor is about 100,000 to 150,000 miles, and the life will be shortened if the engine is started more frequently. In any case, since the starter motor also has a limited life, it will break down after using the car for a long time, and if the starter motor breaks down, the engine will not start.
Symptom: When you turn the key to start the engine of your LaCrosse, you will hear a clicking sound, which is the sound of a bad starter motor. And if the starter motor does not work with a healthy battery, suspect a malfunction of the starter.
If the starter fails, it usually needs to be replaced with a new one.
Temporary fix for starter
If the engine does not start due to the starter, the engine may start if you turn the key while hitting the starter motor with something like a stick or metal tool. This workaround is effective when the parts inside the starter are stuck together or the gears are slightly out of alignment.
However, it is possible that the starter is nearing the end of its life, so it is recommended that you have it inspected at a dealer or maintenance shop.
5. Defective alternator
An alternator is a generator that produces electricity. If your LaCrosse’s alternator fails, it will not be able to produce electricity and the battery will not be able to charge. Therefore, even if you think that the cause of the engine not starting is a battery failure and replace the battery, the battery will soon run out and the engine will not start.
Alternators rarely break down. In particular, modern cars have improved performance, so it is said that they will last 200,000 to 300,000 miles. Still, it can break down depending on how you use it, and in the case of a used car, the alternator may be quite old. Don’t let your guard down.
If the alternator breaks down, it must be replaced with a new alternator.
6. Clogged fuel filter
The fuel filter of your LaCrosse does not wear out like a mechanical part, but it gets clogged by dirt and airborne particles and clogs over time. The permeability of the filter drops, and so does the fuel pressure. To a certain extent this doesn’t matter, but if the fuel filter is too dirty, the engine will no longer perform at full capacity and in some instance may not start at all. Cleaning is not possible, you can only change the filter.
7. Fuel pump failure
If your LaCrosse’s fuel pump fails, then the engine won’t start. The pump normally ensures that the necessary amount of fuel is passed from the tank to the injection system of the engine with sufficient pressure.
Before your fuel pump stops working, it usually becomes noticeable: if your car’s engine breaks down from time to time, the car is difficult to start, the engine jerks a little or the engine performance drops, you should have your pump checked.
Wear or contamination of the pump can be the reason for this. If the pump is leaking, a power contact is broken, a line or a pump lever is broken, the fuel pump is usually also noticeable before failure. You can have a defective fuel pump replaced in your workshop.
8. Blown fuse
In rare cases, a blown fuse could also be the culprit in the breakdown of your LaCrosse. Check all fuses in the fuse box essential for starting the engine. But, be careful when lending a hand yourself to the fuse box! The box is under power and repairs or tests should always be done in a workshop.
9. Defective spark plugs
Without functioning spark plugs, the engine will not start. The spark plugs themselves are often not affected by a defect. Instead, plug connections on the ignition system come loose. If only one plug is actually loose, you can fix the problem yourself on site. If a spark plug has failed, it must be replaced in the workshop.
10. Rodent damage
Rodent damage can be another reason why your Buick LaCrosse won’t start. The animals crawl under the vehicle and bite through cables and wires. In principle, this can affect all vehicle systems such as the fuel supply, the oil supply or the power supply.
The rodent damage can usually be seen quickly by looking into the engine compartment. The damage caused by the rodent bite can be repaired in the workshop. Be prepared for relatively high costs here.
11. Engine failure
Although very rare, but it can also be the cause of the breakdown of your LaCrosse. If a vehicle has an engine failure, then nothing works anymore. It is not uncommon for the driver of a vehicle to be responsible for such damage. Typical causes include tearing of the timing belt, incorrect fueling, insufficient oil, hydrolock, overheating of the engine, or continuous driving in an excessive speed range.
Buick LaCrosse engine
Only an experienced mechanic can diagnose engine failure in a workshop.
Use OBD2 scanner for diagnosis
Since Buick LaCrosse is equipped with on-board diagnostics (OBD), a fault diagnosis can provide initial indications of where the malfunction is located.
To begin troubleshooting, you must first connect the diagnostic tool to your LaCrosse. The OBDII connector is usually located under the dashboard. With the wire connected, you should turn the ignition on. But be careful not to start the engine. Most diagnostic devices then ask for some information about the vehicle. It is important that you enter this 100% correctly, otherwise the result of the search may be falsified. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer and model, you usually also have to type in the engine and vehicle ID number. For exact troubleshooting, always check whether the information is correct.
There are many reasons why your LaCrosse may not start. When looking for the trigger, you should always start with the most obvious cause, the empty battery.
In any case, it is advisable for laypersons to call a breakdown service or a workshop. In the event of a defect, the latter can directly initiate the repair.
10 FITNESS TIPS TO JUMPSTART YOUR ACTIVE LIFESTYLE | by AfterShokz
Whether you’re training for a marathon, looking to lose weight, or just looking to switch it up from binging Netflix, these tips will give you a jumpstart to help you reach your goal!
“When you are eating right, it can change the way your clothes fit, the quality of your skin, and improve your energy level and endurance. But the scale may not show those changes. When you weigh in, you’re measuring everything that has weight, including not just your body fat, muscle, and bone tissue, but also water weight (which can fluctuate wildly), undigested food (even if it all gets burned off later), and waste that your body hasn’t yet eliminated. So if, for example, you’re retaining water, your weight can be higher, even if you’ve lost body fat.”
— Cynthia Sass, M.P.H., R.D., HuffingtonPost
2. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A CHEF TO EAT HEALTHY.
It can be overwhelming at times to think about all the preparation and cooking you have to do just to eat healthy. But you don’t have to be an award winning chef to make something healthy and quick. Read this awesome article for 32 quick and easy recipes.
3. FIND YOUR PUMP UP MUSIC.
“To have music make working out feel more energizing, choose songs with a range of beats per minute that’s comparable to the heart rate you’re aiming to achieve, says Carl Foster, Ph. D., of the University at Wisconsin– La Crosse, who has conducted numerous studies on music and exercise.”
— Caitlin Carlson, Shape
Check our our AfterShokz #monthlymixtape for some songs that will surely pump you up!
4. SWITCH UP YOUR SCENERY
Sometimes changing something as small as your scenery can have a huge impact on your workout. If you usually workout at a gym or around your neighborhood, try working out in a park, near a lake, or even a beach. Switching up your scenery can re-energize your workout and create a sense of adventure!
5. SPEAKING OF SWITCHING IT UP, SWITCH UP YOUR EXERCISE!
“Someone who does the same activity all the time is likely to plateau much sooner than someone who varies her workouts. Just as you can get bored by always doing the same exercises, your body can also adapt to these exercises so that they don’t offer the same benefits that they once did. A little variety might be just the thing you need to get the scale moving again or bust through that strength plateau. ”
— Jen Mueller, Certified Personal Trainer, Spark People
6. CREATE GOALS!
Exercising without goals is like driving in your car and not having a destination. Goals give you a target and something to strive towards. A lot of people have goals of “losing weight” or “getting fit”. Be more specific! The more specific your goal is, the more likely you’ll stick to it! Create mini goals too! Sometimes looking at your main goal can be overwhelming. Try to create bi-weekly goals to help keep you motivated.
7. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!
Make a commitment to learn more about health and fitness! Knowledge is power. The more you read, the more you will know on how best to take care of your body, including exercise, eating and recovery. Check out this list of some of thebest fitness books!
8. BUDDY UP.
If you’re struggling to get motivated, stay on track, or just want to push yourself harder, getting a workout buddy is one of the smartest choices. Having a fitness buddy brings something super important to the table- accountability. No one wants to be that guy who has to tell their workout partner that they skipped a day. Having a workout partner can also create friendly competitiveness, which keeps your workouts energized and fun!
9. YOUR SHOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
“Your shoes should feel comfortable from the first step…shop in the evening — your feet swell during the day and stop in the late afternoon, so you want to shop when they’re at their biggest. Also make sure the sneaks are a little roomy — enough so that you can wiggle your toes, but no more than that.”
— Andrew Kastor, Health
10. LASTLY, DON’T FORGET TO PAMPER YOURSELF!
“If your gym offers massage therapy, you might want to treat yourself to a session after your next cycling class or bout with the elliptical. A new study from the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation suggests that a hands-on Swedish-style massage (which uses longer strokes than other techniques) can ease post-workout muscle soreness and improved blood circulation — validating previous findings based on smaller studies. ”

Learn How To Jump Start a Car When You Have a Dead Battery
You turn on your car, but it doesn’t start.
The battery is dead.
No big deal. We’ll show you exactly how to jumpstart your car with this guide.
While jumping a dead battery is super simple, you’d be surprised by the number of men who have no idea how to do it. And even if you have learned how to jump start a car before, it can be easy to forget what cables go where. Positive on negative? Ground the positive cable on the car with the good battery? Red cable is negative?
To help you avoid looking like a putz when asked to jump start a car and to help prevent you from shocking yourself when you do it, this article offers a complete multi-media rundown on how to jump start a dead car battery. But first…
How to Tell If Your Battery Is Dead
Before you try jump starting a car, you need to determine that the battery is the reason the car isn’t starting up. If you turn the ignition and hear the engine cranking, a dead battery isn’t your problem and jump starting it won’t do a darn thing. However, if you turn the key and the car does absolutely nothing, then there’s a good chance you have a dead battery on your hands and jumping it may be your ticket to getting back on the road.
Your 60-Second Illustrated Crib Sheet to Jump Starting a Car
Click here to see the full-size illustration.
To Jump Start a Car With Cables, Follow These Steps:
1. Make sure both cars are turned off.
2. Connect one end of the red (positive) jumper cable to the positive terminal on the stalled battery.
3. Connect the other red (positive) cable to the positive terminal of the good battery.
4. Connect one end of the black (negative) jumper cable to the negative terminal of the good battery.
5. Connect the other black (negative) cable to a clean, unpainted metal surface under the disabled car’s hood.
Somewhere on the engine block is a good place. Unless you want to see flying sparks and a possible explosion, do not connect the negative cable to the negative terminal of the dead battery.
6. Start the car that’s doing the jumping; run for 2 to 3 minutes before starting dead car.
7. Remove cables in reverse order.
8. Keep jumped car running for at least 30 minutes to give battery sufficient time to recharge.
Note: You should always carry jumper cables in your car with you (along with a number of other things!). You never know when you’re going to need them.
And you’re done. Give yourself a pat on the back for a manly job well done.
Unfortunately, jumper cables will not bring inanimate objects to life. Including hot model women you build in your lab.
The hardest part of the job is simply remembering where to put each cable. Many a man has broken out in a sweat wondering if he is about to make a wrong move and toast himself to a crisp. Here’s the good news: It’s probably impossible to electrocute yourself from jump starting a car. The battery might give you a big shock, but the voltage is too low to penetrate your skin and put you down for the count.
But no one wants to be on the receiving end of a zap, no matter how mild. So come up with some sort of device to help you remember which color goes where. I personally think: red = blood = life = positive; black = death = negative.
How to Jump Start a Car Without Cables
If you have a standard transmission car, you can jump start that bad boy without using cables. Here’s how you do it:
1. Find a stretch of clear downhill road.
2. Fully depress the clutch and put the car in first gear.
3. Turn the ignition to on.
4. Take your foot off the brake and start rolling down the hill, leaving the clutch fully depressed.
5. Coast down the hill until you reach 5-7 miles per hour.
6. Release the clutch quickly. You should feel the engine turn and start. If it doesn’t start the first time, depress the clutch and release it again.
7. If you don’t have a hill, get some of your buddies to give you a push and follow the steps above.
Which card do you put the jumper cables on first?
The car with the dead battery.
Should your car be running when jump starting?
No, do not turn the car until you’ve got the cables on.
Do you remove the jumper cables while the car is running?
You can if you want. It won’t hurt anything.
Can jumping your car hurt your car?
No, if you do everything correctly.
Why don’t you connect the negative terminal when jumping a car?
It minimizes the chance of a spark from occurring.

Republican Center for Olympic Training in Athletics –
The legendary Sergei Bubka from 1983 to 1997 became the world champion six times in a row and set 35 world records. Despite the overwhelming success, the outstanding pole vaulter has only one Olympic gold medal (1988).
According to the approved standards, the thickness of the Olympic medal must be at least three, and the diameter must be at least sixty millimeters
Emil Zatopek received the nickname “Czech locomotive”. He won the marathon at the 1952 London Olympics. It is noteworthy that this happened after the triumph at distances of 5000 and 10000 meters.
American Fred Lorz was the first to cross the finish line in the marathon competition at the 1904 Olympics, but it soon became clear that this “winner” of the marathon covered 17 km as a passenger car.Lorz was disqualified.
In terms of the total number of medals in the World Athletics Championship, Belarus ranks 12th (32 medals: 10 gold, 11 silver, 11 bronze). Since 1983, athletes from 89 countries have won medals at the World Championship.
The Olympic debut at a distance of 110 meters with hurdles took place in 1896. Since the 1920s, women have also started to practice hurdle sprint. In 1935, the T-barriers were replaced by the less traumatic L-barriers.
Although athletes from Russia took part in the Olympic Games of 1908 and 1912, the USSR national team first came to the Olympics in 1952. At these Games, the USSR team took second place.
Runners in steeplechase use special spikes that are different from spikes in other running events. They are designed to release water that collects after overcoming a water pit.
Yulia Nesterenko became the Olympic champion in the 100m race at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.She scored 10.93 and became the first white woman and the first non-US athlete to win this program since 1980. In all four races (two qualifying, semi-final and final) she ran out of 11 seconds
In 1908, the length of the marathon was officially approved – 42.195 km. This interesting figure is equal to the distance from Windsor Castle to White City Stadium in London.
