What STRONG members are saying
"I am loving the STRONG online videos. There is so much variety in the workouts and Lynne offers very clear instructions. She makes the workouts fun and interesting. I especially like that I can do these videos anytime. I truly feel that I'm getting stronger."
BYC STRONG client
"I have signed up for Because You Can STRONG, and have done both the videos and live Zoom classes. As usual, Lynne provides EXCELLENT 1/2 hour classes with a SUPERB strength workout. I especially like the videos (the quality and quantity) because I can do them on my own time, but still get Lynne's expert guidance and creativity in designing the exercises. I tried band workouts on my own, but soon got tired of figuring out what exercises to do. This platform solves all my problems - timing and which exercises.
BYC STRONG client
"I have never been athletic, or consistent in any exercise program. However, as I age, I realize how important this is. I have been working with Lynne for 7 months and feel so much stronger and more flexible."

I am new to strength training. Is this for me?
All of our videos and classes are adaptable to all levels.
That said, as with all exercise programs, you need to use common sense and workout at an intensity that is right for you when using our exercise videos or doing our live Zoom classes.
Once you are a member, I encourage you to watch the section of videos called "Tutorials". There you will find several videos explaining fundamental movements and exercises. These exercises will be found in almost every workout and will help you build a solid foundation.
Also, if you are new to strength training, I encourage you to choose the videos labelled "Beginner".
Please check with your doctor before beginning any fitness program. By performing any fitness exercises, you are performing them at your own risk.
Do I need special equipment for the videos and classes?
Because You Can STRONG videos and live classes are designed to get you strong using minimal equipment.
Here is a list of the common tools we will use:
Resistance bands (these can be Theraband-type bands, bands with handles, tubing, fabric bands and mini looped bands)
I recommend having 2 long bands (4-6 feet long) of different intensities
I also recommend having 2 mini looped bands of different intensities
You do not have to go out and buy a large assortment of dumbbells
I recommend having 2 sets of dumbbells (one lighter, one heavier)
Towel, cushion or riser for head support when lying on the floor
Please note that all equipment needed will be mentioned at the beginning of every video.
For more detailed information, watch the videos in the section called "Introduction to Resistance Bands".
If you need to purchase any equipment, please contact Lynne for more details:
