Madonna Opening New Hard Candy Fitness Gym in Rome

Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images(ROME) -- Madonna is expanding her exercise empire: she's opening a new branch of her Hard Candy Fitness gyms in Rome, Italy this year.

The 13,000-square-foot, three-story facility will be located in Rome's historic center, and will include exercise studios; spaces for personal training, functional training and yoga; a cycling studio and amenities including an espresso bar.  Hey, it is Italy, after all.

Madonna launched the Hard Candy Fitness brand in 2010.  Currently, there are gyms in Moscow; Santiago, Chile; Sydney, Australia and Mexico City.  There haven't been any announcements regarding a North American outpost of the gym as of yet.
