Madonna launched her first fitness centre by teaching a dance class to lucky gym members in Mexico City on Monday (11/29). The pop superstar drew a crowd of hundreds of screaming fans as she opened the doors of her first Hard Candy Fitness compound, where she gave a short lesson to welcome customers.
The Material Girl insists she is proud to choose the Mexican capital to launch her latest venture, which will offer fans a chance to attend dance classes and learn fitness routines inspired by her own. She tells Reuters,
"I have a history with Mexico. I have a connection that I have always felt anyways because of my love and interest in (Mexican painter) Frida Kahlo."
Madonna plans to roll out the venture worldwide by opening fitness centres in Argentina, Russia, Brazil and throughout Europe and Asia.
I'm curious to see what her gym is like, especially the type of classes. How come no US, Madonna?
