Professional athletes know Danny Arnold’s name. His name and Houston-area training facilities, Plex, are synonymous with success in the elite athletic circles. Clients include Julius Peppers, Charles Woodson, and Lance Berkman are just three of the many elite athletes who have trained with Danny.

He didn’t want to be just another “strength & conditioning guy” so he built something better.
Danny took some time recently to sit down with Compete Every Day to share how he built Plex, his approach to training, and what he competes for.
