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.

One Massive Gym, Fit for a Champ


Arrived at City Club, a massive building out in Makati.
It was a most unexpected sight to see when I stepped out of the elevator!!!
 In addition to the massive weight training gym and all the playing courts that greeted me as soon as I got off the elevator, I was told that on the next floor up there's an olympic-sized pool!
 This place was massive, to say the very least.
I vouch it's way too pretty for me and way too modern but will say that I definitely loved the spinning area where participants can hook up their own bikes and get in a sick workout.
 Located right beside the weight room, there was the boxing club -- Hernandez Boxing.
I had been personally invited to come train there today.
Thanks to Coach Kristian for the invite and for training me.
 Special thanks to Coach Vincent too for the padwork and to Aston for letting me watch him train.
 Aston is the much anticipated next world champ and after catching him doing padwork, wow, he's definitely a fighter to watch!
