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.

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.
