Madonna Converts House to Gym

Madonna has been known to be pretty hardcore with her health so this new bit of news is really no surprise. Apparently she purchased the £6 million house 20 yards from her main London home and converted it into a fitness center.

What's more? Madge may intend to eventually combine the two homes so she does not have to leave her house. This means avoiding the crowds who have started to gather while waiting for her inevitable 20-yard walk to work out, and having them scoff at her sometimes unflattering fitness gear. Everyone say it with me now, "Must be nice!"

Does this mean her days of jogging in the park or biking to and from the gym are over? I know you guys have a lot to say about this so let's hear all your thoughts in the comments section below.

OMG fireannach. This is so creapy! I've done the same thing with old guys staring at me on treadmill. They are waiting for me to "bounce". I am building a home gym for cardio as soon as I buy my house (in a few months). I dn't have any children so 1 bedroom out of a 3 bedroom will work well.

Good for her. It's her money, she can do whatever she wants with it. And having a personal gym must be really awesome.

Good for her!!! I'd love that! I'm also slowly converting my tiny apt. to a mini 'fitness center': I've got a pull-up bar, a set of weights, a thingie to help me do crunches, a mat, scales, one of those things you pull apart, etc. The only problem is, I've got to move some furniture around whenever I want to excersise... :(

If I could... I know the lady does rolfing, the weird rack thingy that's huge and full range of pilates machines as well as various cardio machines. She also probably has a full on Judo room for Guy as well as as of his fitness stuff. And for Lourdes a ballet studio and to mention a dance studio for herself. And there's probably a sauna and therapy room as well. Oh yeah if I had the money I'd do that after I helped a couple of needy families first. Plus she probably doesn't want the kiddies to have free access to dangerous equipment. Especially David. I wonder how many square feet that house has? And geez I could never understand why the British photogs expect her to dress like she's going to high tea when she's going to sweat for 3 to 4 hours at a time. She not like some other stars that use gym trips as photo ops - the lady works her butt off. My dad turned our two car garage into his personal gym then decided it wasn't big enough and sold off the machines and joined a conventional gym said he'd rather rip out all the walls in the house and use the entire house and have us live in the garage. Thank goodness he stopped working out altogether. TV watching dad was better than exercise dad.

I'm so jealous! I would kill for my own personal gym. The thing I hate most about working out is being around so many other people. I recently worked out at a new gym while I was visiting my boyfriend, and a girl at the desk just sat and watched me, literally turned in her chair facing me on the treadmill, for 20 minutes. I was so uncomfortable I skipped my cardio for the day and left for the weight room, away from the gawker. So awkward!

Honestly, it would be nice to have a personal gym/fitness centre. The machines do take a lot of room. If I had that much money, I'd have a pretty big personal gym too.

I converted a room of my house into workout room. If I had more money and space, I'd expand it. It's SO nice to be able to work out at home and not have to worry about things like weather or stupid drivers or any of that crap. I can see why Madonna would do something like that.

i don't know, couldn't she have just coverted one or two rooms of her London home into a private gym? I'm sure it's big enough to spare a couple of rooms. Personally, if I had that money, I'd be donating it to charity. Geebus, celebrities and their extravagant lifestyles.

Yeah I'd do it too - if I faced the same papp problems as she did. Sometimes I look adorable at the gym, and then many times I look like shite. But I go and I work hard and I'm healthy and fit so I don't care if I look like that for two hours of my day - but if I were Madonna and every part of me was scrutinized every moment of my day, I'd make a point to not go outside too much - or even not work out too hard - to avoid being criticized over and over (I'm sure it's NAUSEATING!) So, if she wants to make the houses connect and have her own fitness world, I commend her. Plus what a great example she is for her children! Hopefully they'll grow up to be as fit and healthy as she is.

you know, if i had the money and space to do something like that - then i would totally do the same thing. i think that she's trying to be health conscious - and perhaps it's a pain for her to go to the gym because the papps are always there or people gawk at her. she wants to be healthy - and this is a good way for her to do it
