About us

Co-Owners: Jenzel Nash & Alexis Thornton

Different Breed Performance Training was created to help athletes perform when the lights come on. To ensure our athletes are at their best, our workouts are designed to improve their explosiveness, power, reaction time, speed, agility, strength etc.

Each athlete that decides to join the DB family will be trained to make sure they are always prepared with the focus of PERFORMING rather than just playing.

Different Breed is originated out of El Paso, Texas by two former female Division 1 athletes by the names of Jenzel Nash of Houston, Texas (UTEP 2011-2016) and Alexis Thornton of El Paso, Texas (DelState 2011-2013).
