Living in Vancouver has many perks, but we think one of the best is the top-notch instructors who call this city home. From spirited spinners to uplifting yogis and beyond, ClassPassers in Vancouver have access to amazing workouts taught by knowledgeable and inspiring instructors — but which deserve the top honors? We asked and you answered — these are Vancouver’s Best Instructors of 2017!
Lucy Ulmer | Spin Society Cycling Studio Inc.
Winner for the 3rd year in a row!
“She is the most inspirational, incredibly motivating person I’ve ever met. I used to dread spin class and she’s changed my perspective completely. Her classes have become my therapy. She is a wonderful human and has encouraged me to take care of myself, care about working out and her positive energy is contagious! Lucy has made a difference in my life and my friends’ lives and she deserves this award because of it!” –Chandell
“Lucy is the definition of inspiration. Her classes are both challenging and motivational, making you want to push yourself harder and harder. The level of support Lucy provides is unparalleled by most instructors, which means you’re more willing to go outside your comfort zone to see what you can achieve. I know many others that have followed Lucy to the various studios she teaches at as a result of this, in addition to people who have taken on their own journeys as instructors at Spin Society because of her. Couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of being recognized.” –Jessica
“She deserves this recognition as she is very motivating, encouraging, pushes your limits, pumps up the class to be energetic and she loves what she does. She is very passionate about her job and no class is the same. There’s always a new challenge or push in getting sweaty. She has changed my perspective on life to be more healthy and realized I can do more, no stopping me in life.” –Lanei
“Lucy helps us all discover our inner athlete. She is an inspiring leader, a cheerleader, and a force of nature. She pushes you and helps you break down the obstacles you put in the way of your own success. I feel grateful seeing her every week. She makes me feel like I am part of a community, she imparts a sense of belonging and, at the end of the day, that’s probably what we all want. Thank you, Lucy. I am a better person for having met you.” –Chani
Brent Price | Spin Society Cycling Studio Inc.
“Brent went from 300lbs to super-athlete — incredibly motivating to witness his personal journey. Brent shares his enthusiasm, ambition, and passion in every class he teaches.” –Kim
“Brent’s is the only class I come to regularly, out of everything I’ve tried since getting ClassPass last year. His spin classes are challenging but he does such a great job of motivating you no matter how hard you’re struggling. He’s honest with his own troubled past and I think because of that fosters a space where we can all openly try to overcome whatever demons we came to class with, even if it only feels triumphant for that one hour you’re on the bike.” –Holly
