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.

Feeling Blessed... Tuesday, November 21

Boxing with Coach Bogs at Elite Boxing in the morning.

Boxing with Coach Kristian Hernandez at Hernandez Boxing in the afternoon.

It was a double dose of boxing today but both sessions couldn't be more opposite even if I tried. 

Coach Bogs likes to exhaust me with mad combos and rounds on the heavy bag but Coach Kristian takes a much more technical approach and works on specific detailed drills.  The two work super well together with attacking all aspects of the game.

Kristian has been awesome with collaborating with me and Empowered.  He's pulling strings for me and is definitely in my corner so I'm very grateful.  Today he confirmed with me that I'll be able to host my new Empowered boxing class that I'm looking to launch.  We're going to launch it in January, 2018.  I was super thrilled to hear that both Kristian and City Club are in on this but he dropped some more awesome news today when he asked me if I'd be willing to teach a group boxing class for City Club at his club.  This means I'll be doing both a boxing class for Empowered and for City Club, awesome.  Of course my answer was a big "hell yes"!  I had origianlly asked him only if I could host a boxing class for Empowered at his club and now he's asking me to do another, so very awesome.  I was thrilled at his news.

The ball is definitely rolling with Empowered and it's been super encouraging to see who has been supporting me with it.  

Just feeling very blessed today.
