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 Soaked-to-the-Core Wet Kind of Tuesday

Exhausted but happy, hanging out ringside with the guys.  Much respect to them all here at Insider for not only pushing me to better myself as a fighter but for inspiring me with just how hard they train. 
Coach RP, tough but such a sweetie.  I did padwork with him late last week and 
I'm hoping this week to do some strength and conditioning with him.
A rare shot of my coach with an actual shirt on.  It's on him but not "on" him -- it's just draped on.
I can't blame the guys for training here half naked though.  It is the Philippines and damn is it hot here.
After my long walk home from training, I was greeted by this -- a strong man competition on High Street.  I don't know how heavy those concrete balls were that the men were lifting up but wow, you want to talk about massive men.  I have one question though, what does a guy that size eat?! 
From boxing in the morning to functional weight training and conditioning in the evening.
My entire day I was either covered in sweat and/or soaked from the rain.
