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 Full Day of Fabulocity

Met up with the Philippines army to meet some of the boxing coaches.
When I think of a boxing club, I think of a scene out of a Rocky movie. A place that's gritty and hardcore. So basic but so badass. Today I found my Filipino version -- the Philippines Army Boxing Club. With its lack of air con and coaches sporting army shirts, I knew I had to give it a try. 
Important meeting at the Bicutan DOH Treatment Rehab Center.
I am officially now working with Bicutan DOH on empowering their women and I'm so excited.
Some of the ladies on my Empowered FitSquad crew.  I just met them today but already I love them!
I was on such a natural high from today's meeting so I used that as fuel for my training at the army's boxing club.  It was like rocket fuel and I was on fire!!!
