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.

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...
