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.

Jekylling Out... Thursday, October 18

Oh my gosh, the funniest thing happened tonight.  I had promised my BoxHIIT ladies that if they showed up I'd bring the preworkout supplements.  I had changed the original Tuesday evening sweat sesh to Thursday, tonight, because of the rain so I knew fewer would come but I thought sharing some of my supplements with them would be a nice "treat".


I don't usually take preworkout but when I do it's for weight training only, not boxing.  It makes me have to go pee pretty much every hour, on the hour, but it also makes me very easily agitated and annoyed.  I don't care to walk into the boxing club as such, sporting such negative energy, but I really don't mind walking into the fitness gym like that.  No one really acknowledges me beyond a couple of trainers who say hi so I'm not the fan of the gym in the first place and really have nothing to lose because I'm not attached to it.  

I gave the ladies tonight half a serving each of Dr. Jekyll NitroX and no sooner did they drink it up but they started to feel it.  First they noticed their lips tingled a bit; my elbows and hands usually tingle.  Next, they then had to pee.  It has the same effect on me too.  By the end of the workout they said they didn't feel the tingles anymore but they had most definitely sweated more and had more energy.  It was a cool little "experiment", if you want to call it that.
