Coco Bodu Hithi has welcomed fitness guru Carly Rowena for a fitness residency.
From June 16-21, Carly is conducting a fun and unique Floatation Fitness Residency, as part of the resort’s “That Summer Feeling” series of tropical events and activities.
Carly’s week-long residency consists of four bespoke sessions, involving a mixture of functional movements combined with balance, cardio, and core-based movements all performed on stand-up paddle boards. Carly has designed this activity to test the guest’s balance, coordination and strength, not to mention bravery.
Another activity involves using the beach, coconuts, the sea and sand to put the guest’s body to the ultimate test with a full body blitz. This class is designed to give them the tools to engage their core and use their abs without back pain, as well as learn new moves they can take with them anywhere, without the need of a gym.
A personal trainer, fitness blogger and author from the UK, Carly turned to YouTube after working for many years in a job that she disliked. Through YouTube, she cultivated a loyal online community of subscribers and followers, who collectively inspired her to quit her job and qualify as a Personal Trainer.
In addition to training private clients, she now also teaches classes online, and hosts health and fitness retreats all over the worlds.
Carly’s goal is to help her large social media following find a healthy, happy, and balanced approach to feeling good in their own bodies.
Coco Bodu Hithi, the flagship property in Coco Collection’s portfolio, is a chic retreat where you reconnect with yourself, your loved ones and the wonder of the natural world. Translating island life into contemporary sophistication, the resort, which is accessible by a 40-minute speedboat ride from the main Velana International Airport, offers 100 villas that are surrounded by the calm view of the lagoon and the soothing sound of the waves.
With seven restaurants and bars, Coco Bodu Hithi celebrates and offers a variety of exquisite cuisines, taking inspiration from the Maldives and further afield.
An award winning wellness zone on stilts over the clear water, Coco Spa is a sanctuary for the soul. Mindful of the healing properties of nature and the ocean, the spa is designed to retreat for an escape, whether a massage in one of the eight treatment rooms or yoga on the pavilion overlooking the ocean and beach. With a range of products from the Paris label Thémaé combining the healing properties of tea, therapists at Coco Spa are trained in techniques to treat the mind, body and soul. An overwater gym within the zone inspires guests to keep up with their regime of active well ness when away on a holiday.
