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 Empowered by Empowered

I woke up ready to slay the day. 8am dealings with my supplier in Pakistan, pictures of my design in physical form. My vision is taking form!!! Coming soon.
They look awesome, so great.  I can't wait till they arrive here in the Philippines.
Life of a boxer just got a bit lonelier, walking into an empty boxing club, a new one to me but an old and gritty one at that. With the lights not yet turned on, no music playing and no round bell chiming, the energy of the club is whatever I bring to it.
I was "club" hopping today -- 4 boxing clubs in one day. Training at one, coaching at another, and meetings at two. Dropped by Elite to see the coaches. It's been exactly a week since I last saw them but it felt so much longer than that. I really do miss them.
Empowered small group boxing class tonight over at Hernandez Boxing, in Makati.
Every week we do 12 rounds of boxing but tonight we tried out 4 rounds of partner padwork and then did 2 full body circuits. 
Don't be deceived by their gorgeous girl looks, my Empowered sisters just did 12 rounds at my boxing class. Proud of them.
