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.

Ready, Set, Spar!

 The pre sparring pic and post sparring pic... before the beats were given out and taken, before we got gym nasty sweaty and super smelly.
And the Instagram edited pic I posted, along with what I wrote for it...
We didn't come here to look pretty. At 7am that's not even on the mind nor is the mind fully awake for that matter. We came here to train hard. Seven rounds of boxing today and this pic was snapped just as we got out of the ring and tossed our head gear off. Looking rough for the camera, sure, but getting tougher in the ring and that's all that matters. Love my morning sparring!
