The development of bodily-kinesthetic Intelligence is important to human life in the future because living in the future is at risk of chronic non-communicable diseases caused by sedentary behavior.The purposes of this study were to create IPEGs Programfor enhanceBodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence in Anubanjumphol Phonpisaiprimary school students. The process to development IPEGs program consisted of a review of literature, the design of the learning activity. There are three activities in IPEGs program (1) mental fitness training (2) physical fitness training and (3) relaxation. This program had been use for grade 5, 80 students, 4 experimental groups by comparing the mean scores of the correct answers from the Flanker Task intelligence test before and after the experiment. Data analysis using t-test and two-way ANOVA. The result show that mean score of accuracy from bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence through computer of primary school students classified by gender and IQ level between before and after using the IPEGs program, there was a statistically significant difference at .01 level.In which males have higher IQ levels than females. In addition, high and low IQ levels interact with intelligence and physical movements. However, males and females do not interact with physical intelligence and movement, including sex and IQ levels do not interact with physical intelligence and movement of elementary school students. Statistical significance at the level of .01
