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.

One Super Damn Wet Day

Not exactly how I thought my Monday would go -- stuck underneath the roof of a midget boxing bar and looking like one of their "lady boxers" with a bag full of boxing gear and training clothes on.
But, as Mother Nature would have it, it poured and poured.  I was leaving my client's 
condo when it suddenly came and there I was, stuck, waiting it out.
Showed up at boxing soaked and then my soaked-from-the-rain body got even more soaked
but with sweat.  By the time I left, my fingers and toes were completely waterlogged.
Returned home soaked, exhausted and hungry but was greeted by an overly happy Balboa.
You know someone really loves you when you come home super gym nasty and smelly and yet they're all hugs and kisses for you.  That, for me, is definitely Balboa.
