My 1st session was awesome, I started off with boxing exercises in my wheelchair then moved on to standing and sitting on a box exercising. I get tired very easily so done the excercies at my own pace. I was very pleased with my achievements and I look forward to improving my ability at future sessions which I'm sure will help with my overall health. Jon and Rachel were both very friendly and encouraging, the session lifted my spirits as well as working on my physical abilities.
“I really enjoy boxing it’s the best thing for my legs, tummy and fitness. I really like doing boxing hooks and jab uppercuts, the circuit is really good too, we sometimes mix this with boxing aswell in our classes. Jon Thaxton is the best teacher and the best boxer in the world! Boxing makes me fitter, stronger and makes me feel better. I have made lots of new friends. It will really help other children to become stronger and fitter aswell like me and I can help teach others too.”
As a volunteer, it was a truly enjoyable experience joining the Able2B team and allowed me to see what amazing work they all do! Meeting the participants was so inspiring and I hope to continue volunteering as much as possible.
Thank you for the warm welcome that my husband received yesterday. I was not sure how he would cope and i prayed i did the right thing in bringing him along to one of your classes, but so glad i did. The sympathetic but professional tuition he received from Jon, Rachael, Scott and the helpers was second to none.
see you next time-he will definitely be coming again.

Such a friendly and understanding team
Such a friendly and understanding team. Lovely atmosphere. We didn't know if we'd even get our severely autistic son through the door, let alone see him boxing with Jon Thaxton!! Thank you all.
After trying various fitness classes, to no avail, I’m so glad I found this group.
I have Parkinson’s and this affects my balance and walking, and loss of general strength.
I’ve been attending the Tuesday adult class for 8 weeks, plus I have weekly rehab sessions on an individual basis, and I follow a routine at home.
Everyone is so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. They adapt to your needs and sessions are as hard as you want to make them!
My family and friends are so impressed with the progress I’ve made in a relatively short time.
Give it a try, you have nothing to loose!
I attend the adult boxing sessions. Jon, Rachael and all the volunteers make the classes really friendly, fun and challenging. They are a great way to exercise and to improve all aspects of your fitness.
my son Carl goes to the saturday fitness group he really enjoys it he has asd and adhd .the coaches are fab and the helpers lots of patience and friendly everyone is made to feel welcome all the children enjoy themselves my son goes to other clubs but this is the only one he is so focused on when he is here. cant thank Jon and Rachael enough taking time out for the children i would highly recommend .
What a privilege to help out with these fantastic classes. Individuals are motivated and encouraged to really push themselves to their limits. Week on week, the improvements they see in their ability, confidence and self-belief are huge! So amazing to witness such determination and ‘never give up’ mentality. Best of all, there is such a sense of team spirit and fun.......I LOVE IT!!
My children have been attending these classes since last autumn and the progress they have made is amazing. They have developed so much strength, stamina and are focused. Their autism is neither an excuse nor a barrier but the support is there to help them achieve and succeed and you can see their self esteem grow week by week ....it's life changing for them
What a fantastic project to be involved with. Passionate individuals striving to provide quality exercise and fitness to any child or adult that has the motivation to succeed. Such an amazing group of children to work with who are truly inspirational.
Both adults and children with disabilities have been through so much but they always have a smile on their faces and push themselves each session.
Able2B are always pushing to improve and help anyone that wants to be helped. A joy to be able to help
