The 52-year-old pop star has announced that her second Hard Candy Fitness Center will be opening in Moscow. The new facility, projected to open in mid-March 2011, will be a 35,000-square foot space located near Red Square. Moscow's Hard Candy Fitness will also include a partnership with Irina Razumova, founder of the popular Russian chain Planet Fitness.

The news of the Moscow location comes on the heels of a successful grand opening for the brand's premiere location last week in Mexico City, which featured a special dance class taught by Madonna.

Madonna partnered with her manager, Guy Oseary, and Mark Mastrov, Chairman of New Evolution Ventures (NeV), in establishing Hard Candy Fitness global gyms.

"It's especially exciting to have the second Hard Candy Fitness open in Moscow as I really enjoyed the city and the people when I visited during my 'Sticky & Sweet Tour.' Working in collaboration with the experts at NeV and Irina, I know that we will create the ideal workout environment in Moscow that represents my health and fitness philosophy as well as include innovative and inspiring programs," said Madonna in a statement.
