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.

Goal Slaying in the Park

The calm before the storm, when I'm explaining the exercises to the ladies and they 
know it's about to go from zero to ten real fast with the intensity.
 Them taking a break and me setting the scene for the next circuit.
 Walking lunges with torso twists, a great combo exercise that uses the legs and the core.
 Coach Farah joined us today, to take pictures and to watch the ladies kill it with their training.
I don't want to hear any excuses, I have my fair share too, trust me.
Just because I love working out and that's my job, my world revolves around fitness and health, doesn't mean I don't have my excuses.  This was me after coaching but I pretty much looked like this all the way leading up to coaching today -- flopped out on the bed, in pain and hoping I wasn't going to literally poop my pants.  Oh the joys of food poisoning... not very joyful at all.
