A HARD CANDY CHRISTMAS: SISSYDUDE GOES TO HARD CANDY FITNESS!!!

hard13

I’m like a gym virgin… I’ve never walked in one. Never been on any machine or lifted weights. I just can’t. But I was invited by Hard Candy Store GM Kerolos Saleib to take a boo at the new Hard Candy Fitness Toronto. So, how could I resist?

Madge is everywhere you look, here she is giving her best “Don’t go for second best, baby” stare down.

This lovely employee informed me that he’d never used this machine before. So he let me snap his first time.

He’s very “Bel-Ami boy circa 2001”. Too cute.

mmmmcrotch
I wouldn’t be Sissydude if I didn’t… he-he.

Look at all these fitness toys! Apparently some have been actually designed by Madonna and some machines are ONLY available at Hard Candy.

You can watch TV or listen to tunes while you run on these things (not on the machines pictured). BTW, this isn’t like the old Kenny Roger’s Roasters where they only played Kenny’s tunes. Hard Candy was playing all kinds of tunes when I visited. They even have live djs some nights!

These machines are close to the new Yoga rooms that have yet to be unveiled.

THESE ARE THE MACHINES YOU CAN WATCH TV ON!!! I could see watching my Olivia on ‘Scandal’ working really well here. The view is pretty amazing at Hard Candy. It must look so beautiful at night.

Monkey bars for adults! So far Hard Candy’s gym is mostly women and gay men. Madge is totally cool so there are a very diverse group working here. And there is “Strength & Heels” a cardio workout for men and women dancing in pumps and platforms. The gym sells custom-made heels for men for the class. Now that’s AWESOME!

This is the first image you see as you enter. Don’t put Madonna in a corner… she’ll do it herself, thank you very much!

Blue balls in a huge room that can fit 135 yoga mats. NamastHAAAAY!

No clue what this does. But isn’t it divine…

The wall of the waiting area.

An energy drink at the bar? Madonna themed beverages with song titles. But I don’t recall the names. I hope there was a ‘La Isla Banana’ or ‘True Blueberry’ … but not a ‘Hanky Panky’, cus eeewwww.

This women’s locker room entrance looks very cool… Madonna in chains awaits your arrival.

Yep, boys… here you are!

Perfection.

showerrrrr
Now this locker room was really impressive. Very neat and clean. Heated floors, fluffy white towels, hair products, soap, razors, q-tips, a sauna, a steam room and personal showers with cute glass doors. I kinda wanted to stay here with the five wet naked men that were there during my visit. They were all so buff and tight. But Kerolos insists that there are all kinds of people coming here. Not everyone is a muscle god.

And btw… Hard Candy does not tolerate bad vibes from anyone! So be nice and have fun!

Thanks Mr. Saleib for giving me a tour. It actually made me want “to go to there”. Maybe I should ‘Open My Heart’ and get a membership.
