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 Conner vs Me (and him), Team Khabib

Many of my teammates from Team Insider showed up to watch the much anticipated Conner vs Khabib UFC fight today but I was pretty much only 1 of 2 in the packed crowd that cheering for Khabib.

I try not to train on Sundays because my Mondays are nonstop and they start at 5:30am with back-to-back coaching but going all that way to Poblacion to watch the fight, and then having my fighter win the fight... well, I was pumped up instantly for training.
Sweaty, exhausted, and sitting ringside with one of my most 
favourite of favourite coaches, Coach Marcelo.
