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.

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.
