actually JB Berns (Urban Rebounding) created the machine and the workouts so maybe Jackie owed him a favor since JB was heavily into martial arts.

who sort of likes the workouts for something different in spite of not being a JB fan

my wild theory is that he was recruited to promote the thing and given a super-tough version of Cableflex to work out on, so he thought, "Okay, this works!" But, I'm biased cuz I like Jackie Chan and would hate to think he'd knowingly promote junk...he's rich enough!

Who was the female with him in the infomercial? I saw it a long, long time ago. Glad to hear I don't "have" to buy it. For once my instincts were right!

I have it and it is sitting in my closet. I have used it about three times when doing slim series other than that I forget that it is there. I think it is a waste of money $$$. I still have all the tapes that go along with it. They might even still be sealed. Anyone interested let me know.

There's a discount store by me that was selling it for $20. My boyfriend bought it for me as a XMas present. I feel sooo guilty that I've never even tried it.

But, he did buy me the mini ball with video and I do that ALL the time.

I believe it was Janet Jones-Gretzky in the infomercial with Jackie Chan.
