“Strength is for everyone.” This week we’re blessed to have Sam Johnson founder of Strength Farm and Betina Gozo Nike Master Trainer as special guests on the Fitness Break Room.

They believe true strength is the emotional or mental qualities necessary in dealing with situations or events that are distressing or difficult. And they’re people who’ve experienced a lot of life in a fairly short amount of time. Get your ego in check, people! These two are humble, powerful, and so empowering.

Don’t miss their stories and get inspired to make a huge impact on your community. We’re in this together so we might as well learn as much as we can from our fellow fitness pros.

Enjoy the show,



As a Nike Master Trainer, musician, performer, and budding entrepreneur Betina has spent most of her life building a strong foundation for her versatile set of creative interests. Her background ranges from stage, dance, and on-camera instruction to training in guitar, bass, and piano.

In both grade school and high school, she was actively engaged in a variety of activities such as choir, jazz band, dance team, plays, and musicals. Throughout the years, she found that nothing fulfilled her spirit more than helping others, so she became a Certified Personal Trainer.



Throughout Sam’s early childhood his parents made it a point to enroll him and his siblings in as many sports as possible.  They grew up loving to compete and train.  Unfortunately, he also battled injuries and sickness due to a lack of understanding in nutrition and strength training. With parents who worked long hours and days providing for a large family it was impossible for them to afford any kind of personal trainer or athletic performance training membership for him and his siblings.  They found themselves doing what workouts they knew how to do, mostly sprinting uphill or racing each other at local parks and the boys and girls club.

Sam’s time in the military showed him there are ways to develop strength in the most simplistic formats.  In StrengthFarm, his vision is to create a fitness center, not only for adults but for people of all ages to become stronger.

“We value all forms of diversity and it is part of our mission to create an environment where each individual is valued for bringing their own skills and talents. We believe that diversity inclusion makes for a stronger community.

We coach adults of all ages in a personal one on one or group setting to reach for and attain their goals and aspirations physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  We coach young athletes and guide them through their athletic endeavors, supporting them through high school, college and beyond.

We also, coach and help train military recruits. My experience in the military provided me with the unique ability to coach military recruits and I am passionate about preparing them with the skills needed to make the cut.

StrengthFarm is truly a place where you will see a 50-year old working professional training beside a 15-year old high school kid and performing the same exercise at their own paces respectfully. I believe that everyone is an athlete regardless of any perceived limitation, and it is my promise to help each of my members unleash the power of their potential.  Strength is for Everyone.”
