Madonna is building a new empire, and its home base is Mexico City. The international pop diva is opening a new chain of fitness gyms called Hard Candy and the flagship store will open on November 29 in the upscale Bosques de las Lomas neighborhood in D.F.

The gym came about through a partnership with Madonna's manager, Guy Oseary, and New Evolution Ventures. According to Fox News Latino, the project will go global. A statement from Hard Candy Gyms said they "will open in major cities around the world," including 10 more locations in Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Europe and Asia, but no gyms are immediately planned for the United States.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
