Put your health first

Your health and wellness is our top priority. By limiting the participants attending our retreats to a small group of 8, we’re able to give you the dedicated attention you deserve.

Our programs are personalised to suit your individual needs and designed to provide guaranteed results. Unique and innovative, you’ll enjoy our simple yet effective approach to health and weight loss.

We know that a one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss only produces inconsistent results, leading to frustration and loss of motivation. Any weight-loss diet will produce a short-term result, and there’s more to it than just exercise and food.

Our live and dry blood tests will determine your personal issues, so rather than treating the symptoms, you can treat the cause. This helps you achieve long-term, sustainable weight loss. We like to get to know our clients personally and enjoy a close working relationship, keeping you fully motivated and on track at all times.

Our unique approach

Chi of Life is a live-in residential program. We’ve turned our health retreat into a true home away from home on the Sunshine Coast so you’ll always feel welcome and comfortable. Chi of Life is located in a serene and peaceful secure gated community in two villas.

Through our educational program, you’ll become the master of your health and wellbeing. You’ll be empowered with the knowledge and tools you need to continue your journey at home.

You’ll be focused on as an individual as we help to identify and address your specific issues. We’ll guide and direct you to achieve the results you desire.

Our philosophy is centred on inner health, including the 4 core lifestyle practices for total wellness: nutrition, exercise, mind and healing.

Nutrition

Learn what diet plan is best for you and eat healthy for a lifetime. We’ll detoxify your body to flush out toxins and nourish with the power of nutrition filled with life-giving vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants.

Exercise

Enjoy exercise like never before with our fun fitness activities. These include kayaking, stand-up paddling, bike riding, scenic hikes, boot camp, boxing, pool activities, tennis, yoga, pilates, walks on the beach, and more.

Mind

Focus on inner peace with our mindfulness and energy healing workshops, meditation and yoga classes.

Healing

Live and dry blood analysis by a wellness coach is the first step towards understanding and restoring your body. This analysis provides insight into the adrenal, thyroid and lymphatic systems, oxygen levels, inflammation and digestion.

We also offer Live02 oxygen therapy sessions to restore your energy and reduce recovery time after exercising . Increased oxygen  increases fat burning, heals and repairs the body and most health conditions respond quickly.

“Our aim is to restore balance and give the body support where needed because when you strengthen and restore your foundation, the weight loss will just happen without going on crash diets. When you feel alive with energy and vitality, this positive feeling will be your motivator to live a life in good health and make better choices.

I believe this is the first step to weight loss and that no professional should consult a client without knowing what’s going on inside that person’s body first.”

– Gwen, Chi of Life’s resident weight loss and wellness expert

Our success stories

The Chi of Life weight loss retreat is proud to have transformed hundreds of lives. Take 54-year-old Terri for example. Terri was 120kg and admitted she never liked herself, even stating that she was “disgusted” and “hated” herself before attending Chi of Life in February 2014.

“I went in thinking all I needed was weight loss,” Terri says. “But I quickly learned it was more important to focus on my overall wellness.”

Terri is now down to 86kg and is a self-professed exercise junkie.

“During the retreat I couldn’t even walk across the road to the beach without stopping a number of times to catch my breath. I cried one day because I couldn’t even kneel down to the ground and get myself back up again. But now I have heaps more energy. I love myself again and I now always put myself first.”

“This health retreat changed my whole life,” Terri says. “No, it actually saved my life. I have been reborn.”

Chi of Life Weight Loss and Wellness retreat offers specialist fat camp and weight loss programs suitable for men and women of any age, weight, size, and fitness level. We specialise in obesity programs for people over 100kg, and Gwen encourages anyone suffering lethargy and weight gain to look into Chi of Life weight loss retreat for long-term, sustainable weight loss, improved energy and vitality.

“Because when you think about it, without your health and energy what else do you have?”
