Madonna fans read on! The iconic superstar is offering fitness fanatics a chance to work out with her. Yup; that's right, workout alongside Madonna herself.
Madonna certainly knows the secrets to an ageless rock hard body. At 54, she's in incredible shape and rivals the body of gals half her age. Healthy Hollywood is game to give it a go!
Madonna has teamed up with Premium TV network EPIX to provide an exclusive once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for dancers, performers and regular workout enthusiasts to train with the singer. Anyone can enter the contest (www.expixhd.com/mdnaworkout), but only 500 will be chosen to audition. The deadline is tomorrow; so hurry up!
The lucky 500 will audition in front of Madonna's Hard Candy Fitness crew here in New York City. They'll whittle down the number to the top 50. Those fortunate folks get a chance to show off their stuff to Madonna's number one fitness gal, Nicole Winhoffer.
Healthy Hollywood got an opportunity to meet and workout with Nicole last year right before she left for Madonna's worldwide MDNA tour. This gal is a dynamo of energy. She had me skipping on an elevated treadmill for 30 minutes and we did a series of intense toning exercises. All I remember was the sweat was on and I was a little bit sore afterwards. Hey, no pain, no gain!
Nicole is super sweet and has a wealth of fitness information. So, it's no wonder Madonna trusts Nicole with sculpting her body. "I have to know the answers to everything. I have to be ready for any little thing that can go wrong or if she wants an answer to something I need to know this," she revealed to Healthy Hollywood.
This Thursday, Nicole will select 30 fitness and dance enthusiasts who will learn Madonna's dance-inspired "Addicted to Sweat" training routine, and later that day will perform it with Madonna herself.
For those Madonna fans who can't sign up for the contest, there's more Madame M on EPIX TV. The network is airing "Madonna: The MDNA Tour." It's an inside look at the singer's recent tour. The documentary airs this Saturday. For more information, check out www.epixhd.com.
