EDGARTOWN, MARTHA'S VINEYARD, Mass., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Colonial Inn of Martha's Vineyard and popular fitness expert Nisafit announce a joint venture to create the perfect fitness package, the Martha's Vineyard Fitness Retreat.  The splendor of the island's natural surroundings will offer the ideal backdrop for participants to pursue new fitness goals, or to be re-inspired while they learn new health and wellness tips.

Martha's Vineyard is an enchanting island just off of the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  It is rich in history, and a variety of breathtaking landscapes. The Colonial Inn is centrally located in Edgartown, which is widely recognized as the most elegant and picturesque of the Vineyard's towns, and is ideally located for exploring the entire island. Visitors enjoy exploring the brick paths of Edgartown while admiring the historic old captain's homes, the spectacular seaside gardens that surround them, and the stunning views of Edgartown harbor and Chappaquiddick Island. Many also enjoy the numerous art galleries, quaint boutiques and varied dining options that are within steps of the Colonial Inn.

The island has attracted travelers looking for active and healthful vacations for generations, as the fresh sea air of the beloved resort community was believed to have a restorative and therapeutic effect.  Today, health and wellness seekers can revitalize their program with the new Martha's Vineyard Fitness Retreats which will include 3-5 nights' room accommodations at the Colonial Inn and a variety of flexible fitness options from Nisafit, along with her team of health and fitness consultants.  Packages can also be customized around the time frame, budget, and interest areas or needs of the individual participants.  Participants are advised to call the Colonial Inn early for the best availability of packages at 800-627-4701 or 508-627-4711.  

Nisa Counter, owner of Nisafit, is a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor with over 20 years experience.  She has been written up in Oprah's "O" magazine (May 2008) and has a large following of fitness fans around Martha's Vineyard and throughout the country.  "My goal is to offer all my skills, education, experience and personal commitment so that my clients can achieve the goals they set for themselves within the parameters of a healthy, sane, and safe lifestyle. I have held destination bootcamps in the past, in more tropical locales, and am really excited to bring this opportunity to my home base! We've put together a fantastic team, along with the Colonial Inn, and look forward to working with you."
