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.

Pool Laps and One Cheated Race

Freakish winds hit Cabbagetown today and so all the regular swimmers at the pool were no where to be seen.  I had the pool all to myself for laps today, sweet.
...and then Pool Master challenged me to a race in the pool.  I accepted.
The finishing shot.  What you see is my hand hitting the pool wall first but what you don't see is the fact that he totally cheated, making it easy so I could win. 

I didn't know he cheated so bad though but I also knew I surely didn't win.
I accepted the win and then watched the video that his assistant took.  Too funny.
Ya, I totally got beat but that's okay.  That's why he's the life guard and I'm just here doing laps in the pool as a boxer.  Good times regardless and it made for some much added interest to today's pool training.
