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.

I'm Not Actually a Grown Up... Thursday, January 25

I may or may have not sat in my bed for nine hours straight, working on my FitSquad Mentoring Program. 

Don't judge. 

I didn't.  I spent nine and a half.

I also may have called my workers Tits.

In a phone conversation regarding the FitSquad Mentoring Program I'm creating for the Bicutan Drug Rehab Centre, I've called the staff that I'll be there Trainers-in-Training.  In always saying Trainers-in-Training though, I thought I'd be cool and make an abbreviated version right on the spot.  "My main focus will be on the staff from DOH that I'm personally training, the Trainers-in-Training, T-I-Ts for short", I told them, "there are two of them."

And then there was a pause.

On my end of the phone, I had my hand over my mouth, trying hard not to let my giggling become uncontrollable.  Turns out he didn't even catch my mishap.  Instead, he responded with, "how many do you want" to which I responded with "four".  I only said one word but it took every ounce of willpower in my little Polish body not to completely burst out in laughter.

Yup, I'm 37 going on 12... oh gosh.
