Wendy Erven

Wendy is the founder and Program Director CORE10. Originally from Northern California, she moved to Nebraska in 2002 and hasn’t looked back since (except on very cold days in winter).

Favorite Core10 Exercise: Saw to the tower…from the tower, Diagonal Saw, Saw with knee pulls, Wheelbarrow (there’s a Saw in it). And Tower Lunges.
