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.

On the Go, Go, Go

Raced out to Poblacion today for one-to-one boxing conditioning coaching and my boxing.
I'm always trying to find the humour in life's little challenges and I think my PT client and I nailed it right on the head today.   She doesn't like mornings and I don't like meeting new people but I train her in the morning and my job means I'm always meeting new people.
Speaking of new people, there's always some unlucky person who gets stuck in the elevator with me whenever I return from boxing and once in awhile I feel obligated to apologise.  I know I smell gym nasty.  Ohhhh... I definitely know.
It was a busy day for me, full of coaching and training, running around for Empowered and doing errands, but I'm glad Balboa got to relax.  At least one of us enjoyed some down time.
