Get RE:Worked with Cheryl Lynn Rewerts
My passion is providing people the appropriate tools they need to look and feel totally fantastic, be confident, and live a life of balance.
Reaching goals can be a challenge for anyone
When it comes to weight loss, strength, reshaping our bodies, and staying motivated to keep moving, we all have obstacles to overcome.
But you don't have to do it alone. Together, we can make it happen!
My goal is to get people moving and keep them going! Moving them the right way-- by recognizing their individuality, training for functional fitness, challenging and adding variety, and providing them with what they can add to their lifestyle rather than struggling to remove.
I strive to inspire you to better yourself-- while making it all feel deliciously pleasurable rather than a sacrifice.

How I Got Here
Transforming My Life Into The One I Want
I grew up a small town girl with a loving family, wonderful friends, and lucky enough to never want for anything.
But I was living with a label.
I was the “shy” girl, with little confidence, always making others happy at my own expense, and essentially feeling like a door mat.
I wanted to make a change.
I transitioned from small town shy girl, to city-living girl. I was meeting new people and getting a new sense of independence and confidence. I was having fun, but over-indulging in eating and drinking.
but My social life wasn't doing my body any favors and my body confidence went down hill.
I had been active most of my life. Growing up, I spent a lot of time on my Grandparents' farm running around, riding horses, playing outside. I loved doing step aerobics with my mom when I was just a little thing. I was involved in dancing for some time, and then dedicated the rest of my time playing competitive soccer. But that kind of went to the wayside when it was time for college and my priorities changed.
When pursuing my graduate degree, I started frequenting the University Rec Center with a friend, and I fell in love with group fitness classes. I went to as many classes as I could and loved it!
I got back in touch with my inner athlete, started getting back into shape, and focused on myself.
Once I graduated and had to give up the Rec Center, I transitioned to at-home fitness programs, trying lots of different formats. I loved learning about programming and seeing how I could change my body.
I felt great in my body, more focused, better balanced. I was experiencing a New confidence Mentally and physically by getting stronger and creating a healthy lifestyle that worked for me.
Searching For A Different Purpose
Exploring my passion and pursuing my dream
After earning my Master’s of Science degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences and working as a full-time science researcher for 6 years, I felt something was lacking. My job had me working on several obesity studies-- very important research, but I felt very distant from the impact it could have. Although I had spent so much time in the world of science and research, I wasn't loving it anymore.
Finally I said to myself,
why am I studying this in the lab, when I could directly help people with creating a fit, healthy lifestyle?
I had done it for myself, I could help others do the same by applying my knowledge and skills.
Isn’t that the better way to help the fight against obesity?
It was time to start exploring other options, but I was scared. Change is scary!
While change and the unknown is scary, it has been exciting and liberating to start something new!
My husband and I left our life in Cincinnati, OH and moved across the country to Seattle to start a new chapter in our lives.
I was able to make a break from the research career that was unfulfilling and explore something different-- a professional career in fitness.
Official Fitness Professional
I am happy to say I am now an ACE-certified Personal Trainer!
What does this mean? Although I have had experience in "training" almost my entire life, and I have an understanding of the human body with my years spent in science, I am now certified by an NCAA accredited agency (American Council on Exercise) to train others! Professionalism, knowledge, and safety of clients is important to me.
I now work alongside an awesome established trainer, Lisa Hansen, training clients in their homes in the Seattle area. I also have had the opportunity to teach small group strength training sessions at a running and training boutique studio in West Seattle.
If you think you'd like to train with me, feel free to send me a message!
my experience up to this point in my life has taught me positive changes come from taking care of yourself-- your health, mind, and body. Change is possible for anyone-- and I hope I can help others discover what is possible for them.
Start. Move. Discover.
