Kelly and Kate are close friends and business partners who share a love for fitness and competition. They both immigrated to Canada at 11 years old and have endured their fair share of challenges with language and culture.

But after meeting at the gym, Kelly and Kate took a big risk quitting their 9-to-5 jobs and seizing their entrepreneurial spirit to pursue a fitness business aimed at Toronto's international Chinese students. They wanted to challenge the notion that Chinese women are frail, and instead encourage them to be fit; not just skinny. Their dream is to expand their business and launch a female fitness club. They will use "The Amazing Race Canada" winnings to fulfill their goal and empower women to live a healthier lifestyle.

Kelly and Kate grew up with strict, traditional Chinese families. Wanting to follow their fitness aspirations, the girls first had to confront their parents about deviating from the traditional job market, which proved to be a difficult. Ultimately their parents recognized their happiness was most important and supported their ambitions. "The general attitudes of immigrant parents towards their children are changing," says Kelly.

Kelly and Kate are the first female Asian team to compete on "The Amazing Race Canada" and are determined to represent strong independent women by going all the way!
