Rapid Fitness, Inc. Announces Its Company Update

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - November 14, 2007) - RAPID FITNESS, INC. (PINKSHEETS: RPDI), a publicly traded company currently on the Over the Counter, announces today its company update and shareholder request.

Rapid Fitness, Inc. has made the corporate changes:

--  Founder Anthony Mellone as CEO, moved on to new ventures
    Internationally.
--  Mr. Mellone has revamped the corporate structure and, concurrently, is
    moving forward with its business plan and corporate restructuring and made
    acquisitions, with plans to add more structure and acquisitions to the
    company's bottom line.
--  The company is looking for a new Director and officers Geoffrey
    Grosso's expansion of the franchise and investment seminars.
    

The Company may be the subject of naked shorting a practice that can hurt share prices and market valuation. We are presently under valued. As a consequence, the company is asking all shareholders who have their certificates with brokerage firms (which firms can therefore lend those certificates to support the naked shorting practice) to request delivery of their physical certificate. All stock purchased in the market, please ask for cert delivery.

The company is making this request in the hopes that having certificates sent to shareholders (and taken out of "street name" to use brokerage parlance) will undercut any naked shorting and will help stabilize if not bring value to the company.

We intend to file against several of the brokers as well as ask for a Failure to Deliver report compiled by the SEC and/or NASD and if, necessary, we will file a Freedom of Information Act with the SEC and NASD.

On his web site, Dr. Patrick Byrnes summarizes "The Naked Shorting Problem."

--  "...The gist of naked shorting is simply, when a hedge fund [or other
    "Seller"] pretends to short a stock (I say, "pretends" because it is stock
    that it does not really own, and which it does not really borrow). It sells
    those made-up shares into the marketplace, and collects the money just as
    though it sold real shares (note that this is "counterfeiting," more or
    less, though with electrons rather than paper). If it is stock in a small
    company, and does not trade with much liquidity, then the hedge fund can
    keep "selling" its made-up shares and drive the stock price down to
    wherever it wants it to go.
--  In a healthy market, the check-and-balance on shorting would simply be
    the number of shares that are available for short sellers to borrow and
    sell. Since there would only be a finite number of shares to borrow and
    sell, there would be only a finite amount of pressure the shorts could
    bring upon a stock (and it would be offset by buying pressure holding that
    stock up). But if naked shorting is allowed, then there is no limit on how
    many bogus shares hedge funds can create. Thus means they can drive a
    stock's price down close to $0. At the very least, this practice destroys
    people's savings (remember, the shorts make money by driving the stock
    down, whereas any stockholders lose that same amount of money as the stock
    price drops). Some folks believe companies have been driven out of business
    by this, because they cannot raise new capital once those stocks have
    cratered badly enough.
--  The key is this: if given the right to create an unlimited number of
    new shares, essentially out of thin air, not limited by the number of
    shares "in the borrow" as legal shorting requires, these hedge funds can
    always drive the price down and always cover for a profit. That is why
    it's, "illegal."
