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

Separating for Spartan... Monday, June 26

In unofficial news I decided to break away from the pack and create my own team.  I had been debating doing the Spartan Race here on September 16th and both Skittles and I were going to form a team.  We both have our own thoughts on who we should have on our team.  He's more into just asking anyone he knows where as I want a team of solid, fierce contenders.  I figure the team can go one of two ways.  Either I pack it with friends and newbies I can help train and do the competition for them or I can stack my team with competitors who'll fight hard for this and inspiring each other.

And so, on that note, I decided it best Skittles part and make our own separate teams.  

My team is going to be all women.  Correction, my team is going to be all fierce females.  I want a stacked team of females I look up to, team mates that will motivate me as much as intimidate me with their competitiveness and determination.  

Tonight I sent out emails to some of the women I'm hoping will join me in this amazing challenge.

My picks so far consist of the following inspiring female athletes:
Lady J -- pro MMA/boxer
Lady B -- Muay Thai fighter
Lady P -- boxer
Lady A -- triathlete
