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.

Team Support... Thursday, June 21

Took my Klean Endurance chewables to Team Insider, as planned, and handed them out to everyone that was there training, also as planned.  What wasn't planned though was walking into a packed boxing club and everyone being so incredibly on board with testing them out. 

Props to Team Insider!!!

It was funny to approach them all individually, everyone training that is, and ask them to try a chewable.  I told them upfront that I wasn't selling anything but instead had just become sponsored by this particular company, Klean Athlete, and wanted to see what they honestly thought of the product.  I then briefly explained to them what the Klean Endurance chewable does -- it maintains your energy level, sustaining it so that you can continue training for a lengthy time. 

Thirteen of us ate a chewable. 

I was sure to include the two coaches in on the testing because it'd be cruel not to.  To make them train all us boxers training at a continual heightened level wouldn't be fair so they each ate a Klean Endurance chewable too.

I loved it.  For me, it definitely worked and the proof was in the fact that I saved my padwork with Coach Marcelo to the last part of my boxing training before doing some core conditioning.  Usually by the end of my boxing training I'm running out of steam so I put my padwork after my warm up and shadow boxing, before I go and hit the heavy bag with bunches of punches and hard hitting combos.  

It was awesome to have the support of everyone boxing and I know that definitely helped to keep my thinking positive and feel-good-vibes flowing but I definitely also felt the help of the Endurance chewables.  Unlike other energy boosters, like preworkout drinks that make me jittery, the Endurance worked to let me reach my peek energy level and then it sustained it.  It wasn't about giving me more energy but instead keeping me at a level I had naturally brought myself to via warming up.  I took it about 40 minutes into my workout and there wasn't any follow up, post workout crash from it.  I felt good.  Definitely adding this supplement to my daily training.  What I like most about it is that it is from a respected company that focuses on clean supplements for athletes.  I don't think their focus is that of the average Joe and I like that because being that I'm a pro athlete and the demands on my body are so much different because my training is so different, I like that it focuses on this and addresses it accordingly.
