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.

Jumping Two Feet First into the New Week

Yeah, I don't think these monkey bars are actually for monkeys, 
but that obviously didn't stop us.
 We may train hard here at the boxing club but we also play hard too.
First we played hard... then we trained hard.  Sparring Day for me.
Just realized that Coach Adamson is my biggest sparring partner yet.
He's the heaviest and the tallest.  He's also a MMA fighter and a Southpaw, 
so you know he's definitely not an easy one either!!!
To add a bit of pressure to today's sparring, a WBO world champion 
sat ringside as did one of the coaches and some other boxers.
Returned home from boxing and was surprised with a gift -- new socks for boxing!!!
...and lunch out!!!
Warning:  I'm to be fed immediately following boxing and my shower or else you risk me saying "I'm hungry" about a zillion different times and then hangry pains starting up!
