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.

An Energy Jolt and Major Fitspiration

I gave in... I picked up a 5-Hour Energy shot, extra strength.
It was the first time I've tried this and leave it to me to get extra strength too, right,
but I needed to get off to training and I was running on empty.
 Showed up at the gym ready to train hard but it's not the 5 hour energy shot that got me pumped up and training hard, it's running into a familiar but long-time-no see face.  One of the Asian Invasion guys is back -- a trainer that had left the gym to train and work elsewhere.  He's returned!!!
Another long-time-no-see face was there today too.... love this lady!!!
And, as if that wasn't awesome enough, my girl gym crush was there too.
Two long-time-no-see faces and one gym crush... it made for an overdose of fitspiration tonight!!!
I was so pumped at training tonight that I trained long into the night, so long in fact that they actually had turned off the lights before I even left.  You know you're hardcore when...
