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.

Change of Training... Friday, June 29

I finished my homework for KMC, I coached today, I boxed today, AND I even made a video of today's boxing and posted it on Instagram. 


It's been decided that I'm going to switch up my boxing for the next month, to test out a new program.  If crazy is defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results than I'd be crazy not to switch up my training.

Boxing 3-4 times a week and weight training 3 times.

The trek there and back to boxing mixed with my actual boxing training is way too much cardio.  It's such a chunk of my time and effort but it's really not bringing my body to the next level.  I feel it's really built up my endurance and conditioning, I feel strong too, but it's not leaning me out and building muscle like I had hoped.  

Where my body is, where I want my body to be and where I think it should be... they still remain three different spots and it's driving me bonkers. I eat super healthy, I train really hard, I drink plenty of water, my stress is super manageable, and I get a solid night's sleep... so what's wrong?  My boxing is too much cardio.  A big part of it is definitely the hour trek there and hour trek back, not to mention the sun beating down on me that sometimes leaves me with a bit of heat stroke.

I've been adding weight training to the end of my boxing workouts at the boxing club and sometimes I even get in a weight training session at night in my condo's gym, but sometimes it's a half ass effort kind of workout.  The plan is to designate three days a week to solely weight training.  This means on those three days I won't be boxing but instead just getting in a solid workout in on the weights, lifting heavy.
