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.

Sample Gloves Have Arrived

Shipment of new samples for Empowered gloves came in and when I put my hands into them, this was my reaction.  It was one of those "holy crap this is really happening" moments.
Empowered, in Makati and BGC, and apparently coming soon to your fists too.  I like it.
These are 14oz, sparring gloves, so they look big because they are big.  I'm big on Empowered being written on the fist as such but not a fan of the smaller label.  It's not needed but I appreciate my supplier in Pakistan playing around with the look. 
I was on such a high from those gloves.  The excitement of things coming together even though they might not be totally on par with my vision but they're a work in motion.  I then took my high to the boxing club and slaved away at training.
