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.

Breaking Out a Sweet Sweat

 With a possible fight in the works, I'm back to minding my weight and keeping in check.
My pet peeve these days are people who underestimate me and my company because I don't have an actual physical space or because they think I'm "just" an athlete.  If only they knew, seriously.
 Okay, so I've been taking Angkas for about 3 months now, maybe longer, but today was the first time ever that I've had a female Angkas driver so you can imagine my excitement.  I think perhaps I was way too excited but I just thought it was the coolest thing ever.
Yes, this is still the Philippines.  Gorgeous, right?!  Right.
This is what I walk through after leaving one of my clients -- about 50 beautiful horses around a stable.
On a bit of an endorphin high here after I lifted more than the guy beside me at the gym and he had to adjust the machine accordingly, after I just used it.  Ya, I lift weights and yup, I'm a chick.
