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.

Loading Up on Training at System... Monday, October 10

Just because it was a holiday didn't mean that I was going to let Team Blue off the hook, let them slack with their training or get distracted with all the festivities, oh no.  It also meant that I wasn't going to miss training either.  As far as I'm concerned, holidays only mean holiday hours.  They're not a break from the routine hard training and clean eating.  So today, with it being a holiday, I called out Team Blue and told them to meet me at System for training.  I was at System Fitness from 12pm to 4:30pm.

How do you do narrow squats with kickbacks? (Is that with knees close together?) And what kind of weight are you using? Please share more of your training tips :-)
