Madonna to open Russian fitness club
US megastar Madonna will next year open a new fitness club in Moscow, the second one in her Hard Candy chain after a branch opened in Mexico, her associate in Russia said Monday.
"Madonna will be in Moscow in March-April to open the club," Mark Mastrov told reporters. "She will teach a master class and she is very excited."
Mastrov said the fitness fanatic diva had chosen Moscow as "she loves Russia she likes how people dance".
The new club will overlook the Kremlin, the seat of the Russian government.
The project is a joint venture with Russian fitness chain Planeta Fitness whose head Irina Razumova said the club would be close to Red Square and clients would be able to see the Kremlin towers while working out.
Madonna last month flew to Mexico City to open the first Hard Candy Fitness club, part of a global chain she and her business partners are unveiling around the world.
