Sunshine CrossFit and Athletics charges into March with a powerful addition to the leadership team

Sunshine CrossFit and Athletics charges into March with a powerful addition to the leadership team, new yoga classes on the roster, and a nomination for “best workout” in Westchester County.

Powerhouse Coach added to the Sunshine Team

Deb Austin recently joined the Sunshine community as a co-owner and the head of programming. She discovered her passion for strength and conditioning as a Division I college swimmer and went on to attain a bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training and a master’s in Kinesiology. Austin has numerous certifications in CrossFit, weightlifting, strength and conditioning, and mobility. After eight years in California, often considered the mecca of CrossFit, Austin returned to the east coast, eager to apply her extensive education and experience to helping Westchester residents safely achieve their goals.

For three Sundays in March, Sunshine will offer an open level yoga flow combining asana, breath-work, stretch and guided meditation. The series runs March 13th, March 20th, and March 27th, from 10:00am – 11:00am. Participants can attend one session for $25 or purchase the three-class series for $60.

She earned her MA in Dance Education from NYU and her BFA in Dance Performance from UMASS Amherst. Stafford is the creator of 44 Yoga + Movement.
