“My plan for CrossFit Minami is to educate people of Osaka on how to achieve their best level of health and fitness. To help people live healthier, happier lives, perform better and achieve their highest goals.”
Sean McAuliffe, CEO
I’m Sean McAuliffe Head Coach and owner of CrossFit Minami, CrossFit has changed my views on overall health and fitness. After many years doing traditional weight training in gyms to build my body, I never really achieved what I was looking for – real world fitness. I always did compound weight lifting routines but lacked the variety of gymnastics, cardio and weight lifting I have discovered through CrossFit.
I am a qualified motor mechanic and having worked in remote locations in the Australian mining industry for the last 14 years, I’ve had exposure to a wide range of changing physical and environmental demands.
I was introduced to the sport by a colleague who owns CrossFit Mandurah and immediately fell in love with the challenges, competition and camaraderie that comes with it.
Working away from home in mining meant I had to use the gym facilities available; I immediately changed my training style to follow CrossFit’s principles and derived the results I’d long been seeking.
I moved to Koto Kinabalu, Malaysia and trained at X45 CrossFit Kota Kinabalu for a few months. The CrossFit community spirit only reinforced my appreciation of this highly satisfying form of exercise.
My plan for CrossFit Minami is to educate people of Osaka on how to achieve their best level of health and fitness. To help people live healthier, happier lives, perform better and achieve their highest goals.
At the moment I feel there is much that is misunderstood about general fitness in Japan and I intend to do all I can to change it, using CrossFit to pave the way so that others can experience the life changing benefits I have.
Diego Alvarez, Coach
“Before CrossFit, the most I had worked out continuously had been 3 months. Now it’s been 5 years and counting!”
“As I learned more and more about CrossFit, improved my mobility and got fitter and stronger, I started to want to help others do the same. That’s when I decided I want to become a coach.”
