Intelligent Sports, Inc. Targets Rising Obesity Rates in U.S.

UPLAND, CA--(Marketwire - September 6, 2007) - Intelligent Sports, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IGTP) is focusing the re-launch of its Create Space for Exercise program, and its planned facilities for youth wellness and education, on the rising obesity rates in the United States. The Company is in negotiations with several equipment manufacturers and plans to have an agreement in place in the coming weeks to market the Create Space for Exercise program at retailers throughout North America.

In a recent study by the Trust for America's Health, a research group dedicated to disease prevention, obesity rates increased in 31 states last year. Rates of adult obesity now exceed 25 percent in 19 states, up from 14 states last year and 9 in 2005. In 1991, no states exceeded 20 percent. Also in the study, 22 percent of American adults reported that they do not engage in any physical activity. Concerning children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 16 percent of children in the United States (over 9 million) from 6-19 years old are overweight or obese, a number that has tripled since 1980.

"We are intent on securing a contract with an equipment manufacturer and eager to get the marketing campaign underway. The obesity problem is becoming an epidemic, and we are confident that the Create Space for Exercise program, as well as our training methods and educational platforms for youth, will benefit from the increased attention to this issue," stated Thomas Hobson, CEO of Intelligent Sports, Inc.

Intelligent Sports recently signed a Letter of Intent with a Vermont landowner for the development of a 21-acre, year-round sports, fitness, wellness and education complex for children and their families. The facility will broaden Intelligent Sports' efforts to fight childhood obesity and help expand its programs across the United States.
