Madonna to open Hard Candy Gym in Australia

Madonna may not be visiting Australia anytime soon, but her brand new venture in central Sydney is putting fitness first.

Yesterday the V-Club gym in downtown Druitt Street rebranded and reopened as part of the singer's own Hard Candy global chain of fitness one-stop-shops.

This afternoon Same Same spoke to a staff member there who told us the gym is now decked out "with Madonna all around us" and that her music will now always play around the venue. When we were put on hold briefly, 'Like a Prayer' was played to us.

The venue spans four floors, with seven studios and even an outdoor training rooftop. Members have the option to choose from over 30 different styles of workouts, several designed by Madonna herself.

"Madonna works out daily, even during her world tours," say the Hard Candy team. "She has used thousands of fitness centres and trained with some of the top personal trainers and dancers in the world. From this experience, she has developed a strong vision of the ideal exercise, dancing and workout environment."

The first Hard Candy gym opened in Mexico City back in 2010, with Moscow and Santiago coming soon afterwards.

The photos of the venue on this page are from the HardCandy.com.au website – see more here.

The opening of her Sydney fitness centre is perhaps bad timing following recent local ill-will toward the entertainer. After fan outcry when it emerged she won't be joining us Down Under on her MDNA tour next year, Madonna released an apology to Australia – see it here.
