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.

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.
