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.

Today's Spaces

My morning view from where I was coaching today.  So incredibly peaceful.

I coach one of my clients by her pool and the pool looks unto a golf course and a much talked about path.  None of that matters though when I training her.  All eyes are on her and the punches she's firing out like rapid fire.  Lady can hit!
 Yet another space in the same building we're so in love with for Empowered.
 Today's studio is the biggest we've seen yet and around the corner there's a 
massive chunk of extra space that would be so perfect for what I envision for Empowered.
Anyone who says working for themselves, being an entrepreneur, is great has obviously never been one.  The hours are long and the work is nonstop.  Thankfully I have two little beautiful four-legged guys to help me through the long hours.  Thanks boys.
Cassius is still having issues being a puppy but it's so hard to get angry at him.
He pretty much lets me do anything to him so tonight that meant putting him in a makeshift sweater... that he later peed in.
 Balboa isn't so cool with always having to share me but Cassius is a lot to handle some times.
Unlike Balboa who is super chill and will sit for hours on my lap, Cassius is always trying to steal my kisses and stir up trouble.  In that sense, they really balance each other out.
