Madonna has given great gifts to her fans over the years, if they were paying attention. She never coddled them or insulted their intelligence with inane bullshyt - oh my fans, my fans. my fans. Nein! Like every great leader, she leads by action.
One of the earliest and greatest gifts Madonna implemented was that of exercise. I hike, run and cycle every day and have for the past 25 years. I know of many fans that Madonna lead to yoga, swimming, dance or doing whatever it is they like at the gym. Just to move their body. Every time I would see photos of her coming out of the gym with her bulging biceps, I would run to my weights. Inspiring.
Let your body move to the music, let your body go with the flow. You know you can do it!
These are some of my favorite shots of her and past trainer Rob Parr doing it on Carbon Canyon and Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu in autumn of 1987 after her Who's That Girl Tour. All fabulously in her LOOK shorts.
