Madonna's 'Addicted To Sweat': Pop Star Launching DVD Workout Series

The woman who taught us how to "Vogue" is now going to teach us how to work out! That's right -- Madonna, along with her personal trainer Nicole Winhoffer, is launching a new DVD series called "Addicted To Sweat.”

“In 2010 Madonna opened her first gym in Mexico City, and the idea for the opening was to teach a cardio class. She thought that would be a great idea, so we taught a class and the members loved it. She led the class and I was next to her,” her personal trainer Nicole tells The Huffington Post. “I always document the programs I do with her, and we went through my diary and she chose one of the programs to turn into the DVD, which she named 'Addicted to Sweat.'”

Explaining that her job is really a liaison to Madonna, making sure the queen of pop gives her stamp of approval to all aspects of the gyms and DVDs, Nicole insists that Madonna picks everything from the music, to the routine, to the look of each DVD.

“Fitness is so important to her because she’s one to empower people. She is an example -- not just as a pop icon, but an example as a businesswoman, an entrepreneur, a woman that's in shape,” says Nicole. “The only way she is able to get through her day and schedule all her meetings and to be there for her children is to have a fit body. She makes time in her schedule for the workout. It gets her mind and body to connect. She always wants to be the best and everyone around her to be the best. Her fitness is the key. She’s the perfect example to share her workout with people around the world.”

Nicole says Madonna's gyms may be coming to the U.S. in the future. But for now, we can all say goodbye to Jane Fonda and hello to Madonna while exercising in front of the TV.
