Madonna: Fit and Fifty

Word on the street is that Madonna will be doing some double-Dutch jump-roping in her upcoming Sticky and Sweet tour. While all that jumping is a serious cardio workout, I am sure Madonna can handle it and then some. She's seriously fit and today she is turning 50! Happy birthday, Madge.

How exactly does this icon maintain her insane physique after five decades? She works plenty hard at it, that's how. Madonna said, "There are no tricks. Tricks don’t work. Discipline does." And she is one disciplined macrobiotic girl. Plus she knows what fitness tricks do work: she has a great fitness buddy Gwyneth Paltrow, she's got a tough trainer, and she mixes it up. Madge bikes and runs, as well as practices ashtanga yoga and Gyrotonic. She also conveniently has a gym in her home, or at least as close as the house next door that she converted to a gym.

Whether or not she is taking the health thing too far by injecting herself with vitamins, Madonna lives the healthy lifestyle most of the time.

I for one hope to be as fit as Madonna when I hit the mid century mark. What about you, does Madonna inspire you? Tell me in the comments section below.
