Madonna’s new ultra-fancy gym, Hard Candy Fitness, opened in Mexico City yesterday with a huge amount of publicity. Â The material girl herself taught a class at the gym yesterday , and it looked like it was attended mostly by professional dancers and underwear models (no surprise there, then).
Apparently a membership at the luxury fitness center costs $160 per month. Â That kind of membership fee seems insultingly steep to me – is the average salary of a Mexico City resident high enough that $160 for a gym membership is actually reasonable, or is this Madonna’s way of excluding all but the most wealthy people? Â I didn’t think she was that hard-up for cash.
