About - Jon Thaxton

Jon Thaxton is a Retired Professional Boxer and Personal Fitness Trainer, Motivational Speaker and Anti-bullying Campaigner. He is a co-founder in Able2B, a community interest Norwich-based company working to develop services that improve function for children and adults with disabilities.

In his 17-year professional career as a boxer, Jon achieved European and British lightweight boxing titles, which takes a lot more than just simple physical strength. Mental agility, self-belief and motivation were all critical in Jon’s ability to succeed in the sport. Being second-best was never an option, Jon has always believed in aiming for the top.

His boxing career had its ups and downs when he won two major titles in 1996 and 1997 to lose both in 1998. Jon was determined to return stronger and better, and although a road accident paused him for several years, he managed to be back in the pro sport and achieve success again, winning several major titles in 2005 - 2008. Once finishing his professional boxing career Jon started working as a certified trainer and speaker.

He firmly believes that success comes to those who earn it and thus has inspired many to achieve their goals.

His ability to motivate is exceptional, Jon is the speaker one needs to restore and improve self-belief, concentration and confidence.
