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.

A Boxing-Filled Day

 My morning view.  Good morning Philippines, I love you!
Coach Bogs got new glasses!  He looks so grown up now... but he's still equally as silly as before.
Always positive vibes and good times at Elite.  Their coaches really are awesome people.
I'm now only training at Elite one day a week, on Tuesdays when I need to come to Makati to coach my Empowered boxing class at Hernandez Boxing.
I come to Makati around 3:30pm and stay till about 9pm, which means I have to pack training and coaching gear, plus a post training meal, all in one bag.
Coaching a full class, totally worth carrying my body weight worth of gear around.
 The class cap is six, eight came out.  Loved their energy.
Whenever I am coaching, I am reminded exactly why I'm doing this.  I absolutely love it.  I love boxing, health and fitness, and I love coaching, it's a merge of so many loves.
