Fat Farms

Weight loss retreats – an alternative to traditional fat farms

Regain your Health in the Green Mountains – Weight Loss Retreats are a better alternative to Adult Fat Camps – A Jump Start to Getting Healthy

With an increase in awareness in health due to scary statistics regarding obesity, heart disease, and diabetes, the desire for people to become more healthy has been on the rise. Weight loss retreats at Killington, Vermont’s New Life Hiking Spa educate guests about health enhancement, enabling them to continue the healthy habits picked up at the retreat once they are back in their daily lives. A far cry from old-fashioned adult fat camps, hiking and healthy food are an important part of the retreat program at New Life, a great way to get over the initial hump of beginning a fitness campaign.

An Alternative to Traditional Fat Farms for over 4 decades

For over 40 years, New Life Hiking Spa has been helping people lose weight and get healthy. New Life Hiking Spa has been offering an eleven day weight loss retreat with special pricing for over a decade to allow guests to have an extended stay and still be able to afford the program. Due to the increase in longer stays, New Life has recently created a 21 night extended stay retreat. We are about wellness, not a crash diet.

The Most Affordable, All-inclusive Weight Loss Program in North America

New Life Hiking Spa provides its guests with private room accommodations and a private bath. Three meals a day are served, providing enough calories and protein to exercise, but also to lose weight and toxins with clean eating. Guided hikes are offered each day with three levels to choose from. Many start out on the Nature Walk and work up from there. One massage is included for each three night stay. For instance, 7 massages are included with the 21 night retreat/3 massages with the 11 night retreat. All fitness, yoga and wellness classes are also included in the rate.

11 night weight loss retreats are a total of $2,959 for single occupancy and $2,739 per person for double occupancy (guests must come with their own roommate).

21 night extended stay retreats are a total of $5,229 for single occupancy and $4,809 per person for double occupancy (guests must come with their own roommate).

Vermont tax and amenity is additional. If you have not looked around at other wellness retreat and weight loss resorts, we urge you to become informed and call around. You will see that our prices are not only the most affordable, but our 11 night retreat is less than one week elsewhere. Likewise, our 21 night extended stay program is less than 10 days at other places. Keep in mind we have been in business since 1978 and your room and bathroom is private, not shared quarters.

Healthy Habits and Lifestyle Change

In the past, when people wanted to drop quick pounds they would go to “fat farms” and old-fashioned adult fat camps for knocking off weight in a short period of time through intense exercise and near starvation at a premium price. New Life Hiking Spa’s alternative is designed not for quick losses but for a holistic lifestyle change, which leads to healthier habits and better eating, for a gradual but steady increase in feeling and looking better. Our food philosophy has remained tried-and-true for over 40 years!
