Madtown's Owners and History

Wendy Brown and Charles Cotter are the owners of Madtown Twisters.

Wendy and Charley met more than 30 years ago while both were involved in competitive gymnastics in the UW system. Both fitness nuts, they were the perfect fit and went on to marry and open one of Madison’s best-recognized, most successful gymnastic facilities. They began Madtown Twisters in 1982 in one location. They have operated multiple locations for many years and recently are back to one location in West Madison.
