Madonna's personal trainer says the star's "fit body" is the only thing that gets her through the day.
The Vogue songstress is launching a new DVD series called Addicted to Sweat with her trainer Nicole Winhoffer.
Winhoffer says that Madonna has been highly involved in all aspects of the workout DVD production, from the music, the routine and the final look of each volume in the series.
"Fitness is so important to her because she's one to empower people. She is an example - not just as a pop icon, but an example as a businesswoman, an entrepreneur, a woman that's in shape," Winhoffer explained to The Huffington Post.
"The only way she is able to get through her day and schedule all her meetings and to be there for her children is to have a fit body. She makes time in her schedule for the workout.
"It gets her mind and body to connect. She always wants to be the best and everyone around her to be the best. Her fitness is the key. She's the perfect example to share her workout with people around the world."
The famously toned pop legend has long been known for her love of working out.
Winhoffer says the star is planning on bringing her branded gym studios, which are already up and running in Mexico, to the US in the future.
It was through pursuing her Mexico gym dream that Madonna realised her desire to release an at-home fitness DVD.
"In 2010 Madonna opened her first gym in Mexico City, and the idea for the opening was to teach a cardio class. She thought that would be a great idea, so we taught a class and the members loved it.
"She led the class and I was next to her," Winhoffer continued. "I always document the programs I do with her, and we went through my diary and she chose one of the programs to turn into the DVD, which she named Addicted to Sweat."
