Madonna opens more Hard Candy Fitness centers, but not in the U.S.


1/7

Madonna Hard Candy On August 6, Madonna will roll into Moscow with her team of dancers to celebrate the grand opening of her luxe gym’s newest location. The expansive (read: 38,000 square feet) facility has contemporary design features and a group fitness studio tricked out with a specialized dance floor, a swish pool and spa, a boxing ring, and an anti-gravity yoga studio.

Madge opened the first Hard Candy gym in Mexico City in the fall of 2010 and has since launched the Moscow spot, with a location in Santiago, Chile, set to open this summer, plus a St. Petersburg location planned for later this year. Our question is: When will the queen of New York City fitness bring her marble-floored, top-of-the-line, “No sweat, no candy” approach to fitness to the U.S.? We’re waiting.

Here’s a peek into the new digs…

 

Get Started
2/7

Your addiction to sweat starts here, where Madonna’s larger-than-life image checks you out as you check in—at a reception desk that casts a glow onto the marble floor. We’re hoping the candy canes are just for show, because they’d be an odd choice for pre-workout fuel.

 

3/7

Start your workout with some laps in the state-of-the-art pool and end with a visit to the luxurious spa.

 

4/7

The club boasts Moscow’s first-ever anti-gravity yoga studio, making it easy to flip your practice upside down.

 

5/7

Women’s boxing is in the Olympics for the first time this year, so you may feel inspired to start throwing punches. Who wouldn’t in a ring that looks like this?
