About Us

Hey there and welcome to GMD Activewear Australia!

We're not your average activewear brand - we're a family-owned and operated business in gymnastics for over 23 years (founded in year 2000). Our passion for providing high-quality performance-grade activewear at an affordable price for our customers is what sets us apart.

We specialize in teamwear for gymnastics clubs across Australia, as well as offering a wide range of gymnastics products, including our signature bar safety loops and the widest variety of gymnastics hand guards in Australia. Plus, we release new leotards and activewear periodically throughout the year, so there's always something fresh and exciting to discover!

As proud sponsors of Gymnastics Queensland, you'll find us at every QLD Gymnastics State Championship event throughout the year. And if you're looking for the perfect fitting hand guards, pop over to see us - we're always happy to help!

But here's the story behind GMD that makes us even more special - we were founded in 2000 by Sandy and Trish, two mums with daughters in gymnastics sports. Back then, they struggled to find cute gymnastics trinkets and clothing for their little ones, so they decided to create their own. And that's how GMD was born!

Fun fact - GMD stands for Gymnastics Merchandise Direct, but nowadays, we go by GMD Activewear Australia.

Sandy's eldest daughter Kaitlyn was an elite gymnast at the Gymnastics Queensland High Performance Centre who later moved into the sport of trampolining and went on to represent QLD and Australia multiple times across her career. These days, Kaitlyn is a full-time paramedic and QLD weightlifting representative - and the best product tester for GMD!

We're more than just a business - we're a family who loves what we do. You'll find us at GMD pop-up shops around Australia, so why not come and say hello? We'd love to meet you!
