New York: Queen of Pop Madonna has recently announced that she plans to open a series of Hard Candy Fitness Centres worldwide.
And sources say the plan may have evolved after she had a falling out with her former trainer, Tracy Anderson, over the latter capitalizing on the singer’s name to build her fitness empire in New York and LA.
But a different source close to Madonna has denied that the plan had anything to do with Anderson.
“I don’t think she even gives Tracy a second thought. It’s a natural idea for her to have her own gym,” the New York Post quoted the source as saying.
“This is a business plan that she has been working on for some time with her business partner Guy Oseary,” the source added.
Her first gym opens in Mexico City this month, with plans for Russia, Europe and eventually the US, and a source has revealed that she’ll be closely involved in developing dance-based workouts.
