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.

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.
