Madonna’s Russian Fitness Club Opens for Business
(MOSCOW) — One of Madonna’s many non-musical ventures is a line of gyms called Hard Candy — and the second one has just opened in Moscow, Russia.
The 35,000-square-foot facility, located near Red Square, features state-of-the-art equipment, a juice bar and cafe, a pool, a bike studio and many classes, including “Addicted to Sweat,” which features moves exclusively designed by Madonna and her dance team, and choreography and toning exercises that the star uses in her own fitness regime.
Madonna plans to visit Hard Candy Moscow at some point in 2012, and she, her manager Guy Oseary and their business partner will open a third location in St. Petersburg, Russia in the spring.
Also on in the works: a Hard Candy fitness center in Toronto, Canada and possible locations in Italy, the U.K., France, Australia, Argentina and Brazil.
The first Hard Candy fitness center opened in Mexico City a year ago.
