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.

In Love with My Job Today, 110%

Doing what I love with a whole new batch of Lil' Sistas that I already love.
Coaching the Lil' Pow Boxing Class and teaching them the good old 1-2.
The Empowered Creed, something I wrote up as a promise I have all the Lil' Sistas listen
and repeat after me, both before and after every Lil' Pow Boxing Class.

Before I get into the actual physical training, I sit them down in a circle and do some self love talk.
Today's activity including finishing the following sentences, "I am.." and "She [my friend] is..."
Today I had an amazing assistant help me out in Antipolo.  She's actually the daughter of one of my personal training clients and, despite being as tall as me, she's only 14.  It was so great to have some extra help; I really appreciated it.
