Meet The Instructors


Spin Instructor, Owner

Johnny Virgil’s dynamic personality and love of teaching led him to become an indoor cycling instructor eight years ago. Since then, Johnny has taught classes to people of various fitness levels in personalized, unique settings. Johnny also earned his 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at LI Kula Yoga.


When Johnny isn’t teaching, he can be found driving one of his three kids somewhere at any given time! He loves being a dad and caring for his 3 dogs and six cats (not a joke). He also enjoys riding his Harley, watching Ranger games and relaxing at one of LI beaches during summertime.


Johnny welcomes you to his classes.
