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.

Empowered's Boxing Class gets Officially Launched!!!

The joys of handwraps.  I had to prepare handwraps for all my ladies joining my Empowered boxing class tonight but the struggle to untangle them was real.  Ended up buying an extra pair.  It was a treat for me but a backup pair for tonight, just in case any extra ladies came.
Balboa loved playing in the handwraps but apparently exhausted himself before he could help me.
The class is officially packed to full capacity.  Actually, it's over capacity!!!
 My Empowered ladies in action, working the heavy bags.
 Proud coach moments today with seeing them put forth solid efforts.
 Awesome job ladies.  I was really impressed.  They all tried hard and they all were so positive.
 Tonight's kickass crew of ladies for the Empowered small group boxing class.  My crew of 8.
