Madonna opens the first of her Hard Candy Fitness gyms!

Pop queen Madonna was in Mexico to open the first of 10 Hard Candy Fitness gyms

Singer, actress, author, designer - is there nothing Madonna can't do! The multi-talented songstress was in Mexico to celebrate the opening of the first of her Hard Candy Fitness gyms.


Named after her 2008 album, the gyms are set to open in Russia, Brazil, Argentina and various locations in Europe.

Madonna told press: 'It's a sexy name that gives you the opportunity to have fun and to build strength as far as the imagination will allow.'

And as for why she picked Mexico as the first destination, Madge said it was because of the 'energy of the people'.

She said: 'Our plan is to use Mexico as a place to fine-tune our brand and then expand it to other countries and, in the long term, develop a global brand that includes the United States.'

And the lady herself was there to cut the ribbon on her first fitness enterprise, looking ultra glam in a geometric print flutter dress with over-knee boots.

But the glamour didn't last for long, as Madge threw off her red carpet ensemble and hit the gym to work up a sweat teaching an introductory dance class to lucky fitness fans!
