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.

Today it was All About Boxing... But Then Again it Always Is!

Warming Team Blue up for today's training.
On Saturdays we spar at Clancy's.
...and apparently we get all emotional about sparring too.
Too funny.  One of my fighters stepped out of the ring from sparring only to cry and giggle in the same breath.  Not too sure what that was about but she's apparently not the first to do this.  I can somewhat relate though.  There's definitely an emotional connection between pushing yourself to new limits and sparring.
 Doing some core conditioning to end today's training.
  Spent my evening out at Battle Arts, cheering on this pro star -- Killer Bee!!!
 I was way too excited and too pumped to see her fight.  The Captain and I headed out there together so we got super silly at the fights.  I met a monkey and that only added to the enjoyment of the event.
 Meet up with some of the familiar fabulous faces from Jamestown Boxing.
 Three boxers were fighting today out of Jamestown.
 Had to get a shot with Coach Adrian.  He looks all super serious here but he's all giggles and smiles.
