As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.
After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

The use of #blessed is totally appropriate here.
They are blessed and I am blessed for having met them.
I was told to bring my little guys along because they had a big property they could play on and there were other dogs at there home. Their three dogs and my two dogs spent a good chunk of the afternoon chasing each other.
Cassius is quite the swimmer. Yeah, that was new news to us, too.
When we let Cassius off his leash, off he ran towards the swimming pool and then he jumped into like Superman. It was both scary and hilarious at the time so in went Skittles to fetch him, afraid that maybe he can't actually swim. But, as it turns out, Cassius is part pup, part fish.
It's been a while since I've coached a small team for boxing. Nowadays I only do one-to-one training and then, of course, my large scale classes for the Lil' Sistas. Today was a nice change of the usual for me and it was great to get out of the city and have a new experience plus Cassius and Balboa absolutely loved being there.
