Anton Antipov, an International Federation of Body Building and Fitness (IFBB) professional physique champion and fitness model, recently visited BHI Slovakia, stem cell research and treatment center, where he was named an ambassador for the healthcare organization.
Mr. Antipov is an accomplished competitor and New York-based model, who has made a name for himself on social media and in the fitness industry.
Growing up in Belarus, Mr. Antipov never had access to a gym, but he played sports to stay fit. After his family immigrated to America in the 1990s, Mr. Antipov had his first experience of lifting weights and was hooked instantly. Fast forward to today, his fitness industry career has flourished. He’s won a number of major IFBB shows and has modeled for some of the most famous brands and magazines on earth. He credits this success to his sheer dedication and consistency. He was recently featured on the cover of Muscle and Fitness magazine.
“As with any sport or physical activity, there is always the possibility of sustaining injuries. As a professional athlete, my workouts are intense. As a result, I have a partial meniscus tear, the onset of tendinitis in my elbow, and herniated discs, causing lower back pain. All of this pain made my workouts and heavy weight lifting challenging,” said Mr. Antipov. “I am grateful Dr. Mehling offered me the opportunity to be part of his exciting research. Having just completed stem cell therapy at BHI Slovakia, I am beginning to feel less pain and stiffness and I am excited about my recovery progress.”
Brian Mehling M.D., chief medical officer of BHI Therapeutic Sciences, visited the company’s facility in Slovakia and accompanied Mr. Antipov during his trip and recent stem cell therapy procedure.
“Malacky Hospital has a great potential to become a leader in the European region with the stem cell therapies we are and will be offering to local patients there,” said Dr.Mehling. “I am pleased that Malacky Hospital is staffed with expertly-trained medical professionals and is one of the premiere hospitals in central Europe.”
