As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d 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, 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 left. I returned to Toronto, Canada 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. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at 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.

A New Week of New Opportunities

I have a bit of a trek to make for two of my clients I train but I swear they're so worth it.
The commute to them is long but it's beautiful and these two ladies are super awesome.
I don't think I'll ever get tired of searching for the CN Tower in my 
daily commute skyline.  I am home.
Was introduced to short cut today -- an underpass bridge that was a bit sketchy but 
it had a cool vibe to it.  It was just me and the streetcars buzzing through it. 
 No one can stop me but me, I know, but I don't think Balboa sports the same mentality.  Poor little guy was absolutely pooped from his weekend away with his Uncle W.  He had a blast, I'm sure of it, but his energy levels had been drained.
Just look at him.  He can't even keep his eyes open long enough for me to snap a shot.
It was nice to have him back at home, sleeping beside me while I worked.
