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 Sweaty Day

Trained one of my clients here today, a badass, cool condo gym nestled in the middle of some towers and townhouses, totally unseen by those on the street below.
Am pretty proud of this client, of ALL my clients actually, but this one really stepped up her game today when we decided to get a bit competitive with another trainer who was doing boxing with their client.
Dropped by Ayala Triangle today and had a very surreal moment.
 This time last year I was coaching clients for free, now I'm making good money and telling people I'm not accepting new clients.  I wonder where I'll be in a year from now.
A year ago, I was coaching for free and training like a beast.  My coaching situation has changed a lot but my training has and it hasn't.  I train harder now, with a different coach and at a different club, but I'm still fighting to fight.
