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.

Getting Ready for the Pop... Tuesday, November 22

I am the co-owner of Hulk’s Club in Korea and the CEO of Flipside Fitness. I originally had launched Flipside Fitness in Korea (The Flip in Korea) back in 2012 and it became so successful that the next logical step to take its success was to build its own training facility – Hulk’s Boxing, now known as Hulk’s Club. When we opened the door of Hulk’s, the next step was to fizzle out Flipside because now I had a full boxing club full of both male and female clients. They were my focus now, both the men and women at my club, and not just the women like before. 

Then, when I moved here to Canada, I was leaning on restarting Flipside Fitness, was hesitant about it, but that’s what I ended up doing. I launched Flipside Fitness here in Canada – The Flip in North. We’ve yet to do any kind of social events but I’ve been hosting boot camps in Riverdale Park and High Park. 

Now I want to take it to the next level, go beyond Flipside Fitness. I want to launch my Second Dream. Flipside Fitness is to my success here in Canada as it was in Korea – just a stepping stone, a leeway into the bigger picture at play in my head. I received some awesome rough draft work from an ad agency that’s been working to help brand my new company, my Second Dream, and it looked awesome. It was today's dose of inspiration. I'm super excited about it.
