Jackson has done some pretty amazing things... from boxing against Amir Khan to barefoot running across America. Check out what he has to say about doing extreme adventures below. Oh, and if you want to train with Jackson, send him an email about his upcoming Fitness Weekends in Norfolk.
I am a full time sports science lecturer at a college in Norwich, Norfolk. I am also a proud dad to my beautiful little girl with another on the way. I am also an extreme adventurer with many ultra achievements covered with many more to go.
This year was about barefoot running, which has lead me on to firstly running a half marathon in Norwich, then the London marathon, before finishing with a 100 mile barefoot run for Sport Relief.
I am now setting up some "Proven Fitness Training Camp" weekends with some other fitness experts, for those type of people that work in the office all week and need to unwind with something different, and also those that want to lose weight and keep it off by understanding the knowledge of fitness and nutrition.
Being a full time lecturer takes up most of my time. On top of that there's training 6 times a week, added with working with 12 personal fitness/boxing clients, and then most of all being the best daddy I can be to my little girl.
I was a professional boxer with a record of 16 fights, 12 wins and my last fight being against the young Amir Khan back in Feb 2006 on ITV 1 in front of 10,000 spectators and 10 million TV viewers.
Pushing myself to the limits and achieving a true legacy have always been my life goals.
Apart from the birth of my little girl, the other moment of truth was when I "Ran across America" in the summer of 2007 from California to New York City covering 3086 miles in 95 days.
It took two years of planning, with many things needing done - including organising the route, raising £20,000 to fund the adventure, finding the team, health and safety, accommodation.
I organised many fund-raising events with my biggest one being a 300-sit down meal with my special guest, Amir Khan, and other professional boxers and football players.
Hardest: Funding, working full time and bringing up a small family.
Best: Creating a lasting legacy.
Be true to yourself and never stop trying.
Plan in advance, and just try to enjoy the experience; but expect the worst to happen, so it can only get better.
