Keeping Up With Madonna - and the Joneses continued...
Despite Madonna's advantages, her commitment to healthy living well into motherhood and midlife has been an inspiration for many women. "Madonna is kind of ageless," says Candas Jones, 43, a third grade teacher from Lawrenceville, Ga. "No one can really put her in a category."
Like Madonna, Jones had a child after 40 -- twins, actually, now aged 2. And like Madonna, Jones has remained fit in motherhood. But without nannies at hand, Jones and her husband, Ron, have found ways to take the children along on their workouts, whether it was in backpacks or in strollers.
Now the Joneses have built a gym in the basement that's stocked with active toys for the kids as well as workout equipment for themselves. It even has a sound system. Guess what they listen to while working out?
