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.

Boxing is ALL Around Me

If training barefoot the other day and scoring "gym feet" took me to a whole other level of 
training than training injured today definitely pushed me to another level too. 
I was pushed to extremes today and doubted if I could finish but then I met this 
fierce, fabulous female and not finishing suddenly wasn't even an option.
 Rewarded myself after boxing with a dip in the pool... sweaty clothes and all.
 And just when my day of boxing was done, I walked into the mall and was greeted by this -- my gym Fitness First doing a promo event.  They were doing a kick boxing class and there was a screamer, oh gosh.  A participant that insisted on continually screaming.  He was so loud and I'm sorry but I couldn't stop laughing.  I'm convinced that the girl in front of him, also doing the class, wanting nothing more than to drop kick him, seriously!!!
