    Well, now she's opening gyms. The first one just opened in Mexico City. Would you like to go to a Madonna gym?

    I kind of wish we had one in Chicago (or anywhere in the US).

    Putting huge pictures of yourself on the wall is Narcissistic, as long as you're not Madonna or Grace Jones. I don't care too much whether the entrance looks like a Spa or not, I have the impression often people don't seem to believe a decent gym where you can properly work out can go hand in hand with an up-scale Spa-like environment and all facilities you need to disconnect and relax... I'm from Europe and hugely disappointed with what US gyms have to offer here. Maybe Madonna saves the industry. Let's just hope she doesn't inspire Lady G

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidIs she honestly adorning the walls of her own gym with thirty year old portraits of herself? Having huge mural sized photos of yourself in your own business is blatant narcissism. And why are they pictures from the 80's/90's?

    From the looks of that picture I would not go. It looks more like a "salon" or a day spa.


    1) It's Madonna. 2) That's one of the most iconic pictures of her, so that's why.

    In the interview I read, she said she wants to open it globally and it will eventually open up in the U.S.

    PLEASE OPEN ONE IN L.A!!! icon_smile.gif

    they'll probably confiscate any iPod that isn't playing a Madonna track.

    sorry but $160 a month is a bit outta my price range for a gym ($832 initiation fee!) icon_eek.gif

    I agree, that is an iconic photo that most people remember over the years. I think it is amazing that she has so much stamina at 52. She just keeps going forward.

    That stamina has a secret, they're called growth hormones ;-) I'm a fan, though.

    Yes, I agree... Giant Madonna photos in a Madonna gym is not narcissistic. It's called smart business... her photos sell $$$$$$$. I like pretty spa-like entrances and lobbies, as long as there are dumbbells and barbells and threadmills and ellipticals, who gives a shit whether the entry looks like Barbie's Dreamhouse.

    About Lady G: Could you imagine a Gaga Gym! Meat drapes, pointy chairs, and the employees would be forced to walk in Alexander McQueen heels all day!

    Yea I just read about this the other day. Madonna is really into health and fitness. And she is a highly successful businesswoman. People might come because her name is on it, but she knows well enough that to get people to stay it has to be more than just another trendy gym. I'm sure they'll be in all her favorite hotspots (NYC, London) soon enough.
