As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply 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, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman. I left Korea 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.

Life is an adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Always On the Go, Multi-Tasking

 After coaching my morning bootcamp, I ran across this man in High Park with his sausage dogs.  It was such a cute sausage fest so I commented to him about them.  Ended up getting into a chat about them.  Turns out High Park holds some kind of wiener dog festival every year, interesting.
I posted this on Team Blue's Facebook page tonight after a grueling training session.
I had made them do two extra rounds on the heavy bags and had taken it upon myself to be
sneaky about things and switch their usual 2 minute rounds to 3 minutes.
 I've started writing up observation notes for my fighters so while on the subway ride home tonight I scribbled down my observations from tonight's training.  The push to take them to the next level is there and my own push to take myself to the next level as their coach is definitely there.
