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.

Meetings of Business and Pleasure Nature

I like to start my week's off with a good meeting.  It gets me pumped for the rest of the week.
Today's morning meeting was at Kerry Sports.
 Kerry Sports is an upscale training facility that's gorgeous.  
Their front area cafe is what first greets you when you arrive.
 What caught me was the basketball court and the cut-out in the floor that allows you to look below.
And then I spotted their "Boxing Masters" -- a target practice piece of equipment with numbered pads.
I didn't take pictures of the rest of Kerry Sports, I was too busy looking in awe at it all.
They actually have an outdoor pool with a patio sitting area and a mini outdoor cafe.  
It's so incredibly impressive, wow.

From one meeting to the next and then into training gear for my weekly Power Park Workout series.
Ran into these two friendly souls today.  We've met before.  Two boxers who are so incredibly sweet and are as sweet as they are well behaved.  Their owner is a male pro athlete here in the Philippines.
And speaking of pro athletes... arrived at the Philippine Army Gym for boxing and who should be calling my name from across the court but Amanda!  She's a pro volleyball player and is currently contending in the Superbods contest.  She's got my vote!!!
At midnight the Patch Design Contest for Empowered officially ended.
I tallied up all the votes and this was the winner.
The next thing to do was then produce a digital version of the winning design for my glove manufacturer in Pakistan.  Now we have our patch design and glove design, nice.  Now to wait for my guy in Pakistan to make them and then send them to us.  I'm super excited about them!!!
