Is Madonna Obsessed With Being Fit?

Do You Think Madonna Is Obsessed With Being Fit?

When you look at Madonna, her devotion to exercise jumps out at you: the woman is buff. But is her love for fitness bordering on fanatical?

The  pop star has reportedly injected vitamins, she's purchased a £6 million house near her London home and turned it into a gym, and fired trainer Tracy Anderson because she wouldn't accompany her on the last leg of her tour. She also follows a strict macrobiotic diet and bikes, runs, and practices Ashtanga yoga almost daily — or so it seems.

The 51-year-old mother of three is seriously fit and rocking a lean and toned physique.

In an interview with the British television show GMTV, Madonna defended her physique and fitness choices:

"[I do it] for health reasons and for aesthetic reasons. If I have to go out on stage and, you know, jump around in a pair of hot pants I better look good. And also when I perform I'm like an athlete and I have to be in good shape. I'm not panicked, I just know what my job is and I know that if I want to be able to wear whatever I want to wear on stage, then my body better look good."
