Wendy Erven

Wendy is the owner and creative mind behind CORE10. Originally from Northern California, she moved to Nebraska in 2002 and hasn’t looked back (except on very cold days in December) since. She has a Bachelor of Science in Fitness Management and decades upon decades of experience in the fitness industry. She is certified by the American College of Sports Medicine as a Personal Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor, and she values her years of Balanced Body education as the best she’s been through in the Pilates industry.

Her claim to fame is being the first Pilates and Yoga Instructor for the Oakland Raiders many years ago. She’s likely the driving force that got them to the Super Bowl in 2002 😉

Wendy is married, has two busy teenagers, and a black lab / rottweiler who’s trained to run on the treadmill during winter months.

Lori Johnson

Lori is a well-known and reputable Fitness Professional in the Omaha Metro. She’s the mother of one daughter and and is an incredible role-model of wellness, beauty, and balance. CORE10 Pilates is lucky to have her as part of our team of trainers.

She’s a native Nebraskan, raised in Lincoln, with an incredible list of education and experience. She’s a graduate of UNL with a Bachelor of Science in Education and Exercise Science, as well as a certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor (Zumba, Yoga, TRX and Spin). She has taught just about every format of exercise there is in fitness for decades. Her specialized training in nutrition is a bonus for CORE10 members.

Amy Skolaut

Amy “gives the best tips to take your form from good to great” according to many of our CORE10 members. She’s a full-time Orthopedic Physical Therapist whose quest is to diminish “Dormant Butt Syndrome” one person at a time in her own practice and as a CORE10 Trainer.

A Creighton alumna, 1998 graduate of UNMC, and a long-time student and advocate of Pilates, Amy brings a lot to the CORE10 classes and private clients.

Amy is married to an avid outdoor cyclist, has one son and an adopted, very neurotic, German Shepherd.

Christy Troia

Christy is also a new CORE10 Trainer and has been training as a student of Pilates for six years. After many months of intensive instructor training with Wendy and Balanced Body University, she is passionate about teaching classes.

Christy can tell you all about the changes that CORE10 classes have brought to her body. “I absolutely love Core10! How much you put in is how much you’ll get out. This workout has helped me get lean and strong.”

You’re bound to see Christy dancing and entertaining in her classes as she has spent much of her life performing arts. She spent two years in Ithaca, New York working on her voice and performing before she had a shift in the focus of her life, bringing her back to Omaha. She’s now completing her degree in Elementary Education at UNO.
