Lucile Woodward began her career as a medical journalist but never forgot about her dreams of working in the fitness industry. At the age of 24, she embarked on a journey to pursue a certification in sports coaching and has been combining her two passions of journalism and fitness ever since. She now guides others on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle rooted in the science of micro-nutrition and exercise through her YouTube channel, blog, and is the author of many books on well-being and sports programmes.

During her residency at Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives, she will introduce you to a whole new world of fitness with themed group classes along with private 1-on-1 sessions for a personalized wellness journey, accessible to both beginners and advanced athletes. Conceived as a real initiatory trip around the sport, Lucile will offer group classes focused on fitness and yoga, but also cardio workouts on the resort's beaches. An ace swimmer since her early childhood, Lucile will also accompany guests during cross-training swimming sessions.
