MMA or Mixed Martial Arts is quickly becoming one of the most popular sports of our time. The days have passed since this was known as a “blood sport”, and with the support of athletic commissions there is a set of rules that keep the sport fast paced and exciting, yet very safe for the fighters. Head Coach Mark Plavcan was actually one of the persons responsible for helping the State of Wisconsin commission the sport and also sat on the rule making committee. While once a very “underground” sport, nowadays you can flip through your TV channels and find an MMA event almost any night of the week. It’s results are even announced on Fox Sports and ESPN for some of the larger events. It is truly growing into huge phenomenon and is becoming very lucrative for the Fighters as well.
Twisted Fitness’ Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) program will not disappoint, if you are a true enthusiast. With out a doubt, we have one of the Strongest MMA programs around. While we are not known for producing the most fighters from our gym, we have certainly produced some of the best in WI. Twisted Fitness uses a combination of Boxing, Kickboxing, Wrestling (freestyle, folk style, and Greco-Roman), Judo, BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu), and more to prepare our fighters to win in the ring/cage. The MMA program at Twisted Fitness has produced multiple UFC veterans and competitors on Spike TV’s “The Ultimate Fighter”. NO OTHER SCHOOL in the Madison Area can claim as much.
Our program strongly focuses on the fundamentals of each art used during Mixed Martial Arts bouts. We build fighters from the ground up, because there is no replacement for having a strong foundation. Our goal is not to produce tons of fighters for local shows, but to get our athletes to the highest levels of MMA competition. We do not want to build fighters quickly, but instead prepare them correctly, so that they may always be successful. Our goal is simple, be the best at all times.
When a Person is ready to finally test their skills in a Mixed Martial Arts, they will train and prepare with our group of highly dedicated instructors as well as a strong team of professional fighters. Twisted Fitness will provide access to professional fight management, who in turn, will negotiate pay, win bonus, sponsorships, and all other needs of the fighter. The fighter’s job will be to train and fight hard, we will handle the rest.
Each one of the skill sets are taught by instructors who are experts in their fields. Most of the instructors have Mixed Martial Arts experience, as well as experience competing in the arts they teach. We pride ourselves on our accomplishments and are continuing to stream line Team Twisted into one of the best Mixed Martial Arts teams in the country. If you have the wish to be the best, come train with the best.
