London: Madonna has opened a branch of her Hard Candy gym in the Russian capital.

She launched the gym’s first branch in Mexico City in late 2010 and has now fulfilled plans to make it a global business by opening a branch in Moscow.

The facility has been set up close to the city’s famous Red Square and features a swimming pool, spinning studio and exercise classes designed by the singer herself, the Daily Express reported.

She is planning to open another branch in St Petersburg in the spring of 2012 and also hopes to take the venture to Canada the same year.
