As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I was wrong. I stayed, launched my first company, Flipside Fitness, and then opened Korea's largest boxing club, Hulk's Boxing (now called Hulk's Club).

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again.

Now I live in the Philippines where I am the CEO and head coach of Empowered Clubhouse, the Philippines' first and only boxing clubhouse exclusively just for women. I also am the founder of the Lil' Sistas Project, CEO and designer of Slay Gear and Baa Baa Black Sheep .Ph.

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.
