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 Makate, Philippines. Life, for me, is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This 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 and 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.

A Sweaty-Filled Fab Day
Checked out F45 -- a functional training gym that hosts classes.
My teammates for this workout.
We may be smiling but don't let that fool you. We got down and gym nasty sweaty training today!
My last picture with my dad till who knows when. I had found some chocolates in storage so I decided to share them with him. When I asked him how he liked them, he turned and started waving at me. I take it he didn't hear me but it made for a hilarious moment shared.
Hit the weights tonight and ran into this beast-of-a-man, my buddy Tim.
And if that above pic didn't show just how big and strong he is, check out this picture. Now I'm a shorty as it is but look at how much bigger and taller he is in comparison. He's massive in size but is definitely quite the teddy bear.
More pics with another big guy, the Pork Chop. I've known him since my university days.
