Brett Hopkins

SA/NT General Manager

With over 16 years of experience on the AIF team, there is no doubt that Brett, aka ‘Hoppo’ (as he is better known by) has a rich passion for the fitness industry.

Hoppo began his career with AIF in 2004 as a Career Advisor, coupled with working as a Personal Trainer at Goodlife (formerly Zest) Health Clubs.

This was the launchpad for Hoppo’s long-standing career with AIF, working in roles such as Senior Career Advisor and Sales and Marketing Manager. In 2011, Hoppo became the youngest CEO in the company at the age of 29, a role which he continues to thrive in today.

Hoppo is driven by getting the best out of others, and is a firm believer that people are always the number one asset. This shines through in his ability to coach and motivate his team and the students and graduates around him.
