Instructor of the Month: Catherine O'Sullivan

Catherine was nominated by Luciana Marcial-Vincion, owner of Charleston RIDE™ in Charleston, SC:

Catherine has been a certified Spinning® instructor since 1998 and works full time in the industry as a personal trainer. She is what we call “the perfect example in all things—character, humility, talent, skill, charisma, leadership, and love!” says Luciana. She helped pioneer the Spinning program in Charleston as one of the original instructors in the area.

She is widely known as a mentor to other instructors, focused only on helping them to succeed. She re-defines the word generosity: her selflessness as an instructor is upstaged only by her desire to see others shine. She feels greatly rewarded from seeing growth in others as they progress—continuing to spread the Spinning message!

Catherine has cultivated a group that is known throughout the community to assist local charities and organizations including the Pattison's Academy School for children with disabilities. Her involvement with the Pedal4Pattison's 4-Hour Annual Spinning Marathon has propelled the event to raise over $450,000 in 4 years. She continues to be a voice for change in her locale using the Spinning program as her primary vehicle.

New riders who experience their first class with Catherine don't just come back to ride again, they come back to experience what a true family is all about. They come for a fantastic training session, the music, the friendship and the stories at Charleston RIDE.
