As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. 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 left. I returned to Toronto, Canada with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at 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.

Running in the Rain... Saturday, May 14

Rain or shine we train. Today it rained; today we trained.  I hate running in the rain -- wet shoes, wet socks, squishy feet slipping around in slippery shoes.  And what's worse than running in the rain then running in the rain with broken headphones.  My headphones have officially gone ghetto on me -- sometimes they work, other times they cut in and out. Thankfully it didn't rain too much and I had Coach Madman running with me and filling my ears with tips and stories so the lack of music wasn't bad at all. 

Today was Coach Madman's birthday and we "celebrated" it via the addition of stair runs...great.  Running damn wooden steps that are already falling apart, in the rain, sounds like fun to me...sarcastically speaking that is.  We then returned to System to do some leg training with weights.  Am convinced my pain is his pleasure.  Happy birthday Coach Madman.
