As our program is designed to be Adro’s representation of not only his weight loss journey on the biggest loser, but also all of the things that he knew were not a part of that. It has been created for – and works towards – specifically targeting obese and morbidly obese people who are over 100kg. Adro realised that there is nothing available (other than The Biggest Loser for the lucky few contestants each year) for these people who really need not only a fighting chance but also the correct information, education, support, empathy, guidance and discipline, to be able to develop enough self-worth, the correct behavioural patterns and psychological foundation to ensure success. We also take a no nonsense approach allowing us to break through more frequently with our guests during their stay.
The program focuses on all of the lessons that he needed to learn in order to break free from the demons of obesity and live with that continued success. This took place during and well after the production of ‘The Biggest Loser’ and through major research and much practice we have perfected the formula necessary for “successful weight loss from an obese starting point” and “rehabilitating obese people to tackle weight loss in their home environments”.
We are only able to do this through implementing Adro’s key philosophies and much of our life experiences. We believe that only in a sanctuary of support, knowledge, motivation, discipline and positive energy is the desired success achievable.
It is for that reason that we focus only on the people who Adro feels need us the most; those who are where he once was. ‘The New Me’ aims to aid and influence those who need it as potentially, a matter of ‘life and death’.
The program is specifically designed for people who only have great amounts of weight to lose or who are over 100kgs, meaning that we have a minimum entry weight for our program to ensure that we are providing the correct rehabilitation treatment for each person in an emotionally comfortable and safe environment. Regardless of weight, all of our guests are starting from the same place of being over 100kg and they are all aiming for the same goal of getting under 100kg as a minimum.
Our program saves lives and there is no reason why it shouldn’t save yours!
How we implemented this information
The sole purpose of ‘The New Me’ program has been to offer a private facility which rehabilitates obese people who are over 100kg. We aim to help them properly understand and implement weight loss strategies in order to have a serious go at successful weight loss. We enable them to experience a stint of guaranteed rapid weight loss and personal development while learning and implementing future key strategies for continued weight loss, health and fitness gains, long term weight management and dealing with the psychological issues that either cause them to continually fail or prevent them from actually wanting or trying to succeed.
Our rehabilitation program is designed to not only guide people on their weight loss journey but also to:
- Outline the processes and allow them to be subject to living and learning complete lifestyle changes for a healthier mind body and spirit; privately in an ultimate practical weight loss environment.
- Have our guests identify that what they have been doing until arriving with us wasn’t working. This is a step that allows us to begin creating a lifestyle model that is encouraging toward not only weight loss but optimal health and makes weight management achievable and manageable throughout the rest of their lives.
Everyone learns to make changes to current lifestyles that promote a new healthier life.
We have the ultimate location set amongst undulating hills that provide not only a beautiful back drop, but also terrific training grounds that allows us to offer all year round obesity rehabilitation workshops in our live-in format. We have been able to perfect the rehabilitation element to create a home style environment that ultimately will allow you to change what wasn’t working and find what will.
This location is private and only used for our rehab clients meaning that although it’s not some elaborate beach side hotel in some fancy location what I have instead is an amazing location, that is purely dedicated to rehabilitating obese people.
‘The New Me’ also has an offsite training studio that is exclusive to rehab clients during group training sessions.
Everything we do is dedicated to rehabilitating the over 100kg people who attend ‘The New Me’. We are set up only for this purpose and we pride ourselves on our ability to do this very well!
Our Program, For You.
On Adro’s very public journey many may remember that during the course of his weight loss, Adro lost a lot (of weight) but found a whole lot more. He found out more about himself, who he was, who he wanted to become and how he was going to make all of his dreams become his reality through leading a healthy life.
The 2 greatest things he learnt on his weight loss journey were:
- To believe in himself, and
- Weight loss isn’t singly about food, exercise or even motivation; it is a combination of all of those things. This has become The New Me’s philosophy.
Since winning and becoming Australia’s first Biggest Loser, Adro developed a philosophy:
‘Eat Smart, Move More,Think Thin’. Adro had identified that these are the three key elements that he believes and has taught us are crucial for weight loss and optimal health, not only the initial obesity rehabilitation or weight loss period but also for the longevity of those fitness, health and weight loss results both physically and psychologically.
We now live, promote and teach a holistic method to weight loss, personally and through our amazing team of handpicked staff.
As we can all agree; there is no point losing weight if it is only going to come back, because we all know when it comes back it almost certainly comes back with a vengeance!
We know that this will work for you as it did for Adro and has for many of our guests so far. Allow yourself the moment to stop just being alive, and start living life! Or for some of you reading this… saving that life.
While we run a very structured and specific rehabilitation program designed and tailored to target all three of our key philosophies, it is not all simply about the exercise, or the cooking, or the psychology, removing yourself from your sabotaging environments or simply getting away from home or work; IT IS ALL OF THESE THINGS EQUALLY.
Once you chose to commit and arrive at ‘The New Me’ – as with any other form of rehabilitation – the program is intense and not in any way optional or adjustable as we know that this is the exact type of rehabilitation you need to be able to lead a normal healthy, happy and thin life.
We implement these through a variety of processes
- Education classes,
- Motivation seminars and lectures,
- Cooking classes, self-cooking, meal planning,
- Shopping and recipe classes and challenges,
- Group therapy classes and one on one counselling with our psychologist. NB: you will need a Medicare ‘Mental Health Care Plan’ (MHCP) to be able to maximize the full extent of our psychologists program).
- Group personal training, 1 on 1 and self-training time
There are a number of great tools that you are given on arrival as your ‘starter pack’. These are things that are imperative to your success.

Minimum stay 2 weeks, maximum stay 12 weeks
‘The New Me’ program runs primarily on a 2 week cycle, having all guests arrive on a set Monday and leave Saturday the fortnight after, or on the Saturday that completes their 2-12 week length of stay.
Many guests have chosen to stay for longer periods of time than the initial 2 weeks seeing our average and preferred duration of stay being 4-6 weeks with many staying as long as the 12 weeks.
Focusing on those ever important lifestyle modification techniques, the programs is tailored to allow for a less physically able – and sometimes practically immobile clientele – as well as those who are not physically challenged other than the obvious weight related issues. With the training sessions that we run they’re not necessarily all hard; by participating in the program you will be able to enjoy somewhat of a specially tailored boot camp style environment with a whole lot of adventure and activities while working towards identifying those areas of your current lifestyle that needs the most attention to ensure success.
“One normally finds what they resist the most is what they need the most”
As a direct implementation of our guest’s commitment to their desire and need to change, once our guests have begun their journey, there is no leaving the retreat. We commit to you, and you commit to us! It is a total resetting of life and rehabilitation of your old ways, those very same ways that are killing you.
