Coach Joseph Virga
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and having spent 11 years as a trader on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, Joe decided that he wanted to do something he was passionate about-fitness. With his wife, Trisha, they opened a CKO Kickboxing franchise in Brooklyn, NY and then after having 2 of their 4 boys moved to San Diego to start another CKO Kickboxing. In 2013 Joe felt the call to train young athletes and that’s when he met Bill Parisi at the IHRSA Conference in San Diego. One month later The Parisi Speed School of San Diego was born. In 2015 Joe won the Parisi Speed School Best Practice Outstanding Community Service Award and in 2016 for Outstanding Staff Development. In 2016 Joe was asked to become part of the Master Trainer Team. His 4 boys Joseph, Caleb, Luke and Matthew love to run and come train with dad at Parisi!
