Hi, my name is Sean McAuliffe, and I am the founder of LIFEFIT MINAMI. I have always been involved in fitness, starting with a variety of sports such as football, lacrosse, and triathlons, as well as traditional weight training in gyms. However, it wasn’t until I discovered functional training and CrossFit that I truly found my passion in overall health and fitness.
As a qualified motor mechanic for Mercedes-Benz for 7 years and a mechanical fitter for 7 years in remote locations in the Australian mining industry, I have learned to adapt to various physical and environmental demands. It was a colleague who introduced me to CrossFit, and I immediately fell in love with the diversity of workouts, competitive spirit, and camaraderie it offered.
While working away from home in the mining industry, I had to make use of the gym facilities available and quickly shifted my training style to follow CrossFit principles. This led me to achieve the results I had been seeking for a long time. I even trained at X45 CrossFit Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia for a few months to gain more knowledge and skills in CrossFit.
I then moved to Osaka and opened LifeFit Minami 8+ years ago. I am continuously learning by attending CrossFit level 1 and 2 courses as well as self-researching. My focus now is to provide a training method that is low-impact, with full range of motion and functional, that can be accessed by people of all fitness levels.
My goal is to help people achieve their goals in weight loss, strength, and live a pain-free life.
