Rising Asian sports club appoints leading sport medic
October 24, 2012

Cutting-edge anti-ageing expert and respected doctor, scientist, lecturer and author Prof.Dr. Michael Klentze is to take up the role of Chief Scientific and Medical Officer of leading sports facility Thanyapura Sports & Leisure Club (TSLC).

Dr. Klentze's vast experience across a number of medical fields - including cardiology, oncology, immunology, sports medicine, nutritional medicine, stress intervention, as well as gynecology, psychiatry, endocrinology , anti-aging endocrinology and prevention of age-related illnesses, plus stem cell research - means he is excellently positioned to manage the first-class sports medical facilities available at the TSLC.

Internationally renowned in the world of medicine, German-born Dr.Klentze is a luminary in the field of anti-aging; he opened the KlentzeInstitute for Anti-Aging Medicine in Munich in 1996; by 2008 he had joined his Institute with the DiagnoseklinikMuenchen, and the Klentze Institute now operates a worldwide network of anti-aging clinics in Madrid, Spain; Istanbul, Turkey; and the USA.

His distinguished worldwide medical positions and directorships have included roles as Senior Professor at Mae FaLuang University, Bangkok, Thailand; he was scientific advisor at Pfizer in Germany between 2005-2008 for clinical applications in anti-aging medicine; he became Secretary General of the European Society of Preventive, Regenerative and Anti-Aging Medicine between 2003-2009; and has been International Medical Director Vitallife/Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok.

Furthermore, Dr. Klentze (pictured above) has had more than 100 publications appear in peer-reviewed journals, is the author of six books about anti-aging, endocrinology and molecular genetics in preventive medicine, and has given more than 600 lectures worldwide in his specialist fields.

Such a high-profile appointment as Dr.Klentze's highlights TSLC's commitment to hiring the best international talent in all its operations, particularly as it steers towards the official launch of Thanyapura at the end of 2012.

Welcoming his appointment Dr.Klentze explains "it's a great honour to be appointed to this role at TSLC as it is recognised for leading the way in sports and leisure facilities across Asia.

"As a world-class sports facility it is equally dedicated to the health and safety of all who attend, be it professional and amateur athletes or local, national and international sports enthusiasts."

The appointment also confirms Phuket-based Thanyapura's bid to becoming Asia's leading active lifestyle destination. Sports medicine plays a significant role in the club's philosophy, given its unprecedented range of academies in the region, with competitions, teams and training at all levels and ages, including football, aquatics, tennis, rugby and triathlon academies.

Thanyapura President Robert Hauck says the TSLC is delighted Dr.Klentze is joining to the team, adding "his long, illustrious career and his experience across such a multitude of medical fields will make him aforce to be reckoned with and will boost our commitment to sports medicine and sports science even further, ensuring all our members and guests reach their full physical potential while keeping safe."

The TSLC's facilities are among the best in the region; a 50 metre Olympic-standard outdoor swimming pool with electronic timing system, coaches' observation window and a 600-seater shaded grandstand, a 25 metre outdoor swimming pool with coach/teaching platform, full-size International Rugby Board-standard artificial rugby pitch and 1,500-seat shaded grandstand, four Plexi-cushion indoor tennis courts with a 600-seat shaded grandstand and two Plexi-cushion outdoor tennis courts.

Members and guests can also access a 500 metre cushioned athletics track with long jump, high jump, triple jump, and a 1500-seat shaded grandstand plus a Limonta 'Soccer Pro' FIFA-standard pitch, floodlit basketball and handball courts, beach volleyball and soccer pitch, state-of- art Fitness Centre with latest Technogym equipment and studios for martial arts, yoga, Pilates and dance classes.

Situated on a 23-hectare plot framed by mountains and nature just 15 minutes from Phuket International Airport, the TSLC boasts is the Thanyapura Integrative Health Centre on its complex, which combines several aspects of medicine, such as physiotherapy, traditional Asian medicine and contemporary treatment technologies.
