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.

Sweaty from Morning to Night

Today Coach Adamson snapped candid pictures of us on our phones and then posted them on Facebook with the hashtag "finger workouts".  In my defence, I was snapping a picture of my in-your-face boxing boots.  Regardless, I told him I'd get him back.
Snapped this of him, on the floor wrestling with one of the big guys.
They were doing padwork for Muay Thai when suddenly they crashed and started grappling.
I figured I'd get Coach Mercelo too, because he knew what Coach Adamson was up to and he smiled at me instead of telling me.  I took some videos of my padwork today and screen captured him trying to photobomb my video.
 Now back to work... real work.  Real, hard work... training.
Got in my solid rounds of padwork with coach before then doing my heavy bag work and abs.
I was doing abs when this guy walked in.  I met him the other day most randomly at The Refined and I had challenged him to come out.  He actually took me up on my challenge, wow.  I was impressed!
I have two big meetings this week that I'm stressing over so late in the evening I decided to hit the weights.  I figured it'd get those feel-good endorphines flowing so I could better attack and conquer my planning for such meetings.
Mission accomplished.
