Madonna to open “Hard Candy” Fitness Centers around the World
Madonna in partnership with her manager Guy Oseary and New Evolution Ventures (NEV) announced the establishment of Hard Candy Fitness global gyms which will open in major cities around the world. The first Hard Candy Fitness is a beautiful and uniquely designed 30,000 square foot space which is scheduled to open in Mexico City mid November in the exclusive Bosques de las Lomas area. Madonna will be visiting the gym on the 29th of November for the official launch.
Throughout her career Madonna has been devoted to fitness and well being and has worked out in literally hundreds of gyms around the world. As a result, she has a strong vision on what the ideal exercise, dancing and work out environment should be. The direction for how to bring that vision to the fitness world began to take shape during an initial meeting between Mark Mastrov, the innovator behind 24 Hour Fitness and Guy Oseary early in 2008. Mastrov has built a fitness empire of over 420 clubs in 16 countries. Mastrov, his partner Jim Rowley of NEV, Craig Pepin-Donat, the Vice President of Marketing and Development, along with Madonna and Oseary, are now in the planning stages of opening 10 more locations in Russia, Brazil, Argentina and throughout Europe and Asia. In addition, they are currently exploring opportunities and local partnerships around the globe for facilities where fitness, fashion and entertainment create a unique member experience.“Madonna’s world tours have taken us to many of our favorite cities around the world. We are looking forward to opening Hard Candy Fitness with NEV in many of these same places,” commented Oseary. “Our goal is to create an environment inspired by Madonna’s vision and high standards of what the ideal gym would be. Hard Candy Fitness will be a reflection of Madonna’s point of view and will reflect her input on every detail including music space, light and other design cues. Madonna’s touch will be everywhere.” stated NEV Chairman Mark Mastrov.
Chris Dedicik, Hard Candy’s Managing Director commented, “Hard Candy Fitness is a one of a kind experience merging fitness with entertainment. We are dedicated to exceeding the expectations of our members.” Hard Candy Fitness members will experience the very best in innovative training methods including private, group and dynamic training including traditional classes such as Zumba, Latin Moves and Cardio Kickboxing as well as new programming designed specifically for Hard Candy Fitness. The fitness center will also include a Bike Studio, a Mind Body Studio featuring The Great Wall, where members can practice BarWorks, Sculpting, Capoeria and the newest trends in Yoga. It will also house a healthy alternative Juice Bar/Cafe. The lavish locker rooms built with the finest materials will be a sanctuary for members who will be able to relax in sauna and steam rooms. Members will also benefit from state of the art cardiovascular equipment with personal viewing screens, more than 60 pieces of strength equipment / free weights and the best group fitness, functional training accessories and brands including PreCor, Hoist, Free Motion, Nautilus, Hammer Strength, StarTrac, AbCoaster, and TRX suspension training. For membership information, visit the enrollment center at Bosque de Duraznos 47, Bosques de las Lomas or call +52 55 5245 7550.

Gossip: Madonna dating Brahim Rachiki ?
Madonna has been spotted getting close to a younger man, and it’s not her boy toy lover Jesus Luz.
The Material Girl, 52, was allegedly seen kissing her choreographer, Brahim Rachiki, 33, at a nightclub last week in New York.
Gossip: Madonna has a new young boy toy
Madonna has found herself a new toy boy after splitting from her former flame, Jesus Luz — and he’s a dancer two decades her junior.
The Queen of Pop was out Thursday night at Meatpacking hot spot SL with a dancer believed to be in his late twenties.
“They came in together and were holding hands in a private area,” a spy told us. “Madonna got up and was dancing for an hour straight before going back to her man. They immediately started making out in front of other guests.”
The superstar was seen sneaking kisses and laughing with the young man, and the pair stayed late into the night and even chatted with DJ Tiesto, who arrived shortly after they did. A rep for the club couldn’t be reached.
The duo moved on from SL to the Sullivan Room in Greenwich Village at 1 a.m. for a Libation Party, where they showed off their dance moves before indulging in more public kissing.
A spy said, “After working the dance floor, they found more private seating where they hugged and kissed for the rest of the night.”
Justin: “Madonna is so stubborn”
Timberlake told Metro of Madonna: “She’s the most stubborn woman in the world. As a woman, she’s the highest in stubbornness.
“But she’s very smart and incredibly cerebral. And I think that’s why she’s been able to change her style and image so much. Her music pays attention to what people are thinking.”

Madonna’s stalker ordered to stay 10 blocks away
American pop diva Madonna‘s stalker has been ordered to stay at least 10 blocks away from her house.
Robert Linhart was arrested last month for scrawling messages outside her New York home, reports dailystar.co.uk. Few of the messages read – ‘Meet me please’ and ‘Tell me, yes or no’.
The 59-year-old former fireman was charged with criminal mischief, graffiti and possession of an icepick. He was later released on bail of $19,075 after he denied resisting arrest and weapons possession.
‘A condition of his release will be that he not be within 10 city blocks of Madonna’s address on Central Park West,’ said Laura Ward, Manhattan Supreme Court judge.
Madonna’s film gets royal approval
Madonna has gained some royal approval in the form of Princess Michael of Kent.
The two met when Madonna was doing research for her debut film as a director about Wallis Simpson.
Princess Michael said: “I found Madonna rather pleasant. My husband had no interest in meeting her. He is not one for showbusiness.”
The royal couple met Wallis in her later years, although Princess Michael was unable to provide Madonna with much information.
“The Duchess was too frail for tittle-tattle by the time I got to meet her. I did tell [Madonna] Wallis was one of those woman who stopped the traffic.
“She was a marvel – not unlike Madonna herself!”
