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.

Gym Nasty All Day

I'm the happiest when I'm at the boxing club, perhaps that's why I built my own.
I'm not the only one who's super happy at the club... check out Coach Bogs and one of his fighters.
I have absolutely no idea what they're doing but they're making a racket laughing and acting all silly.
What makes me not happy is this massive container of BCAAs.
They're "unflavoured" but I argue the flavour is actually "pure nastiness".
The struggle to down a glass of this on a daily bases is real.
Back to being happily sweaty though I should note I'm not as happy at my condo gym as I am at the boxing club, not even close.  The lack of community vibe here is totally nonexistent.  It was like that at my condo in Eastwood and at the Fitness First I trained there too.

Community vibe at the boxing clubs here?  Definitely.
Community vibe at the fitness gyms here?  So far it's been a definite no... the search continues.
