In this episode, we get to know new Hale athlete and staff member Steph.

Steph’s First Steps

Have you met Steph yet? 

She joined the Hale family a few weeks ago, both as an athlete and a staff member working the front desk at the gym.

Though she played soccer as a kid and young adult, she’d been relatively inactive before CrossFit. But after enduring an ectopic pregnancy, she heard the three words she never thought she’d hear: “You almost died.”

“At 24 you don’t ever think that you would hear those three words,” she said. 

Steph wants to be here for the long haul and to be able to keep up with her now 2-year-old son. So she joined CrossFit Hale. Even though she was “terrified” in her first class and sore for a week after, she came back. 

“I felt good; I felt amazing,” she said. “The environment’s super, super welcoming.”
