Draft Central: Plex training facility
Plex Performance doesn’t advertise. And they don’t have to.
Danny Arnold’s facility and client list speaks for itself. Countless agents bring an even more countless number of football, basketball, baseball and soccer clients to Plex Performance. If you want to train for the NFL Combine, you go to Plex. If you’re a professional athlete and want to gain an edge in the offseason, you go to Plex. Charles Woodson has been asking Arnold to build him a Plex facility for him to train at in Orlando.
Plex has also accumulated some of the best boxing talent in the nation and around the world. Arnold brought on Ronnie Shields, who’s worked and trained with Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield to name a few, to start up the boxing training aspect of Plex. Some of the best fighters in the world are now at Plex, twin brothers Jermell and Jermall Charlo and Sergie Liakhovich, again to name just a few. Arnold has taken the endless miles of jogging out of boxing training and replaced it with state of the art workouts. Plex uses lights and lasers to workout its athletes. It seems any out of the box training that is out there, Arnold was either a part of it or perfected it in some way. But Arnold always says, “We don’t believe in tradition, we don’t believe in doing something because it’s been done. We believe in doing it because it’s the right thing.”
Plex also brought D.J. Hayden from near death to the top cornerback prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft. Hayden suffered a near fatal injury on the practice field at the University of Houston. Arnold’s first goal was to get Hayden to the point of a productive life after undergoing an emergency surgery that left Hayden a scare almost the length of his of entire torso. Now Hayden is fully recovered and ready to take on the NFL all thanks to his will and determination. Along with help from one of the best facilities in the world.
