Often when space is limited or a conventional court layout cant work a multiple basketball tower provides the ideal solution. The Gymleader Basketball 3 Way Tower carries an Engineering Design Certificate and features a 150 mm diameter steel post and three backboard support arms arranged around a 'top-hat' central section. The system is supplied with a Galvanised Samson Basketball hoop and net. The post can either be permanently concreted into the ground or the optional ground sleeve can be used which means the tower can be removed. In either case, a solid and secure footing is required in the ground.

Matt has been in the engineering space for over 10 years and got his start after advertising on the supermarket “looking for work” wall and landed his first job making boat balustrades and rails in his home town Helensville, Auckland.

He had worked for a number of companies both big and small when the opportunity came up to join the team at Gymleader. Matt gets to both make and install sporting equipment for gymnasiums across New Zealand. Some of his work covers manufacturing our basketball ceiling hung units and basketball towers to the onsite installations hanging massive Draper divider curtains which can be 30 meters long with a 10 meter drop. What’s been your favourite project? The Fox Glacier gymnasium was a real cool job for me and a brilliant install for Gymleader. It was pleasing to see a whole community pitch in and build a centre from scratch with all the volunteers donating their time and being so rapt with all our Gymleader products. Their passion was next level! Matt experiences this vibe with most of the smaller towns as he travels all over the country installing Gymleader equipment. When Matt’s not on the job he enjoys time with his artwork, making metal sculptures and thoroughly enjoys music and staging live events. We asked what he likes about being at Gymleader his reply “Gymleader is constantly progressing and that’s what I’m about – that’s what has kept me here”.

As the official New Zealand agents for US company Spectrum Sports, Gymleader will oversee the installation of the wall, in what is set to be a major boost not just for the school, but the wider south Auckland community. Gymleader operations manager Glen Kavanagh said it was an exciting project to be part of. “The school approached us about it and through our relationship with Spectrum Sports, we have secured the deal,” Kavanagh said. “It’s got benefits for the school themselves obviously, but they are also interested in helping their community. There are plans to bring a rock climbing club in to use it as well, so it’s a way of the school being able to give back to the community. “We are setting it up in a way that in a couple of years the school can look at expanding the wall if required.” 038, 20 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.gymleader.co.nz/blog/Looking-for-the-Climbing-Rock-Walls-New-Zealand spectrum rock climbing walls GYMLEADER INTERNATIONAL https://www.gymleader.co.nz/blog/803289 Gymleader New Zealand and the league of nations:  Gymleader has a multi-cultural team that customers can engage internationally with our bilingual staff.

Trevor loves and has always wanted to be in motorsports. This passion has seen the head chef from Wild Fire take advice from his son to follow his dream and get into welding school to gain his qualifications and get his ticket. Trevor walked into welding school sighted a sign Level 3 & Level 4 asked the teacher what they meant and from her response chased to be top of the class. Trevor study hard and gained 100% in his level 3 and 99% on Level 4 and it would be fair to say is very proud of this achievement. Once he became qualified in welding he was given an opportunity to join our team and Trevor can tell you that was 22 August 2016 and has just celebrated 2 years with us at Gymleader. When asked what’s his best feeling working with gymleader? He replied “each morning he drops his daughter off at school and I’m proud to see all the sports equipment that is out on the school fields and play grounds are made here at Gymleader with the team from our hands - how cool is that?” Trevor still following his dream today being in and around speedway stock cars and loves it… he’d love it more if Gymleader ever became a sponsor on his own race car.

Johnny arrived to New Zealand after 10 years working with the Samoan Government Water Dept developing a wide range of skills. Johnny’s family landed in New Zealand where he spent sometime in Wellington before working with Coco Wire and making shopping trolley’s for Countdown supermarkets here in Auckland. His nephew Otto who at the time was working for Gymleader, told his uncle about a vacancy here at the company and as they say, the rest is history. Johnny’s job, when he first started at Gymleader 14 years ago was making Gymleader trampolines and he states they used to manufacture around 100 units a week back in the day. The Gymleader trampolines were shipped off shore to the Netherlands and made to the highest standard from the best materials. However with customers changing and the company evolving with new products, Johnny has had to learn a new range of skill sets and there is not one piece of Gymleader equipment today that this man has not made across our in-house manufactured product range. In 2008 Johnny was the first welder fabricator to manufacture our famous basketball ceiling hung units here at Gymleader and has been producing them as our in house expert since then - currently he’s working on 24 units for a big install project in Christchurch. During his time he has helped train many of the team and is always the first man on the factory floor. The best thing Johnny likes about the Gymleader is the owner “he’s happy” and the people. Great having Johnny as part of our team we love the passion. 036, 6 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.gymleader.co.nz/blog/802759 BASKETBALL 3 WAY https://www.gymleader.co.nz/blog/801997 Fantastic excitement for all the Ormiston Senior School kids when the new Gymleader basketball "3 Way Tower" was installed.

Simon stats were shared on the evening - he has carried the ball into collisions almost 3000 times, making more than 23,000 hard-won metres. In the NRL, which often resembles a playground of massive men, Mannering is one of the smaller forwards on the field, but he's thrown himself into nearly 8000 tackles, and across 13 seasons averages less than three missed tackles every two games. The stand alone insight of all these statistics, which epitomises Mannering more than any other, is that he has averaged 76 minutes per match across his career and played in more than 90 per cent of possible Warriors games during that time. Mark said "Simon had a great night." 036, 8 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.gymleader.co.nz/blog/756467 AIRTRACK LANDS AT GYMLEADER NEW ZEALAND https://www.gymleader.co.nz/blog/751508 Fantastic new range landing at Gymleader New Zealand the ultimate inflatable gymnastics mats from AirTrack Factory.
