About Kim Horner

Head of Operations - Brisbane

With over a decade of sales, management and leadership experience, Kim Horner is widely considered a thought-leader in the space of creating a growth culture. 

Kim is never satisfied with the status quo and continually disrupts the traditional view of management as he balances the needs of high-performance teams with the right tools for the job. 

After completing the Master Trainer Program™ at the Australian Institute of Fitness (AIF) in 2007, Kim began his career in fitness as a Personal Trainer and Operations Manager on the Sunshine Coast, in Queensland.

Since then, Kim has held several management and multi-site operations roles within the fitness industry, working primarily with ‘big-box’ health club chains before returning to AIF in 2013 as the State Sales Manager in Queensland.

In 2017, Kim took on the Sydney-based position of National Sales Manager, a role he held until returning to Brisbane in 2019 to become Head of Operations.

Kim has been with AIF for over 7 years and continually strives to positively impact the operations of the company.
