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.

In Sweat and In Love

My coach was away today so I got to train with another coach and he was so technical.
 I already sweat like a mofo at training but today he took my sweating to a whole other level and it was down right nasty... GYM NASTY!!!
After training I then had to shower, eat, and race off to meet my brooker.
I fell in love with the very first place she showed me.  

 The large open space with the high ceilings and the massive beams it was perfect.
What you're actually looking at in the above two pictures are the two rooms this space consists of with the second picture being what you see when you first enter it.  The door at the far left corner opens up to the massive space with the basketball net.  If I take this space though, I'd see about chopping down half that wall and also possibly taking on the smaller space on the first floor.  It'd give me a gorgeous entrance way and a lot more parking spots.
