"Our new trisected approach to personal development supports the Thanyapura mission to deliver unrivalled levels of coaching and to help clients achieve their goals at their own pace" - Robert Hauck, Thanyapura President
PHUKET, THAILAND - Thanyapura management is proud to announce an innovative new approach to the pursuit of sporting excellence by offering three dimensional training focusing on mind, body and soul to athletes and sports enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
Trisected approach to training: Thanyapura has developed a revolutionary new concept in fitness and sports performance training which targets physical development, mental fortitude training and lifestyle coaching for emotional balance. For high resolution image click here.
With clients ranging from sports enthusiasts to world record holders and Olympians, Thanyapura Sports and Leisure Club (TSLC) offers the highest standard of professional sports coaching in world class sports facilities, complimented by non-physical training at the Thanyapura Mind Centre to develop mental fortitude and emotional balance. These two approaches to training are framed by the individualised health programmes offered by Thanyapura Integrative Health Centre (TIHC) for an all around approach to a healthy, active lifestyle.
"Guests at Thanyapura are aspiring to a wide range of different goals such as attaining a healthier lifestyle, improving sports performance and fitness levels, reducing anxiety and managing stress," said Thanyapura President Robert Hauck.
World class sports facilities: With Olympic-standard pools and state of the art performance monitoring equipment throughout, Thanyapura's latest training approach is just one aspect of the Asian sports haven's committment to sporting excellence. For high resolution image click here.
"Our new trisected approach to personal development supports the Thanyapura mission to deliver unrivalled levels of coaching to educate, guide, motivate, train and nurture our guests to help them achieve their own personal goals at their own pace in a challenging yet positive environment," he added.
There are a wide variety of programmes on offer with clients being given the freedom to select the most appropriate training system for them based on their individual requirements.
Physical programmes at TSLC include a tennis improvement course, a triathlon training course, and a swimming development course as well as sports performance camps aimed at children which will take place in July.
Meanwhile the team at Thanyapura Mind Centre offers mental development programmes to cultivate Concentration and Meditative Insight which increases sporting stamina, focus, emotional balance and wellbeing led by Mind Centre teacher Andreas Capellari.
The first of its kind in Asia: The newly launched, world-class Thanyapura Sports Hotel supports guests in their pursuit of sporting excellence. For high resolution image click here.
TIHC's expert health professionals offer guests a wide range of services tailored to the individual including physiotherapy, de-stress programmes, age-defying routines and more. TIHC's non-invasive state of the art testing allows the world class team of geneticists, doctors, sports scientists, and dieticians to provide recommendations for improving mitochondrial diet, implementing exercise program changes and administering supplements for competitive athletes which adhere to the World Anti-Doping Guidelines.
The Thanyapura project was completed with the opening of the 77 room Sports Hotel in November 2012 which has been receiving a stream of Olympic teams, athletes and sports enthusiasts from around the globe.
Thanyapura President Robert Hauck said guests at the hotel could find themselves rubbing shoulders with a who's who of world sport. "We have recently hosted world record holders and Olympic champions from the British, Dutch, and Italian national swimming teams, who were here at TSLC for high performance tune-up sessions.
"The Sports Hotel is ideal for athletes. The rooms and studios are not fussy or cluttered, but they are contemporary, pared back, and designed with the athlete's needs in mind, from a special menu available for athletes in training to bike racks for cyclists and triathletes who want their steed close at hand to custom mini-bar items like power bars to the high end mattresses for a good night's rest and the spectacular Gregory Burns prints on the walls. All hotel guests have free access to pools, gyms, sports locker rooms, running tracks and group activities at TSLC," explained Mr Hauck.
Champion training: As well as sports enthusiasts and those seeking a more active lifestyle, Thanyapura has worked with many world record holding athletes and regularly hosts international sporting events such as the Phuket Iron Man tournament (pictured above). For high resolution image click here.
"But at the other end of the spectrum, we are now getting around 10 Korean honeymoon couples a week, who want to do Muay Thai sessions or yoga. It has always been my belief that there is an untapped market in Asia for a new, more active getaway for couples or families. Everyone can benefit from Thanyapura's world class facilities and winning vision, and be inspired," he added.
Asia's first dedicated Sports hotel, TSH offers 34 'Sport Rooms', 34 'Energy Rooms' and nine private studios with complete access to the facilities at TSLC.
These latest developments at Thanyapura see the fulfilment of the management's ambitious plans to develop a world class sporting facility on a scenic 157 rai plot framed by mountains and nature just 15 minutes from Phuket International Airport.
