Elise Ingram, BS

Trainer

Graduated from Ball State University receiving my degree in Bachelors in Science in Exercise Science back in 2017. I have been a Fitness Coach and Director of the Raise The Bar program here at Base for 5 years. Recently I just became an accredited flexologist. The reason why I chose to work in this field is because I think it is important to learn how to make healthy choices to make people understand that life is what you make it. I grew up in Melrose Park then spent most of my life in Bolingbrook attending Bolingbrook High School. Main sports I used to participate in were volleyball and dancing but was pretty an all-around female athlete. During my free time, I like hanging out with my friends or boyfriend, traveling, and spending some quality time with my family.
