To dani r... Apparently you have not been in the gym lately. We have more trampolines at this gym then anywhere in grand rapids. We have an entire outdoor gym setup including a turf field and volleyball court. Outdated don't think so.

My daughter attended A&B since September (2010) and well we were never impressed. The gym itself looks run down and out of date. My daughter enjoyed gymnastics though so we continued to go. We found out recently though that one of the coaches and former owner is a registered sex offender. We were never told about this and I see him around the gym often. He even works with young pre-teen, teen children. The day we found out about Paul we decided not to go back I cannot believe any parent would allow their child to be in close contact with a known sex offender and to justify it is insane. No good parent would take a chance by allowing Paul to be or work with their child.

Other lies that I cought on one of the posts was that my dad threatened to kill himself, my mom and my sister and I? This person needs to get their facts straight.... My mom was definitely pregnant for me at the time this was all going on. And my sister and myself do not spell our names the same way it is on the company.

People get your facts straight. It's funny how uneducated some adults on here are.

I've read all the above reviews and know a few things for sure:
1. My children are the most important thiing in the world to me
2. Paul Hagan IS a registered sex offender (http://www.mipsor.state.mi.us/PSORSearchDetails.aspx?oid=8555629)
3. There are quality several gymnastic centers in the Grand Rapids area...why woould I go here?

All gossip and here-say aside I'd most centainly not take this gamble when it comes to my kids. I'd also like to add that I would never go into this gym and ask this guy his story...I think that the state registry tells me everything I need to know. Those who choose to talk to him are using time and energy listening to a story from one prespective, that of a convicted man....do what you will, but the choice seems clear to me. Wish I had known sooner and hadn't taken my children here ever!

I am a coach and busniess owner who had dealt with paul for some time. I was a little nervous because of some of the reviews I read but I decided everyone deserves a fair chance. My gym often vists his gym and he is a wonderful person. It is so sad that people take such time to tear someone apart. I needed help with how to grow my gym and help with coaching and things and he has helped me so much. He is such a selfless person and works so hard for his gym and gym kids. He has several boys at his gym that couldnt afford classes so he gave them things to help around the gym to earn their tution cleaning or taking out trash etc. One was obese and he helped him get to a healthy weight by letting him train at the gym for free and had him help him sweep and things at the gym. I take kids from my gym ranging from 4 to 18 and never one time has he done anything inappropriate. He is a class act and a great coach and runs a great gym that is always packed. He doesnt do this by being a creep he does it with hard work. His family is also the best and so kind and I feel sorry for his daughters that people just cant stop posting things. I have been up their for camps where there are several other Michigan gym owners with their kids traning at his gym too. Coaching is a tough job and he is always working with a postive attiude and a smile on and my kids love him. I hop one day people will stop beating a deadhorse and give it up. This gym isnt going anywhere its a great gym full of great coaching!

I know what happened with Paul and still entrusted my children to the care of his gym. Paul paid the price for his actions and is trying to move on. Where is forgiveness? He has also done private sessions with my girls and never touched them. Bonnie and his girls are wonderful and I feel terrible that they have to live with this degradation their whole lives. Let them move on too...don't gossip and let them be.

i want to start off saying that i have been part of aerials my whole life and never has paul pulled anything on my team mates. Paul is the best coach i have ever had and im greatful for him because he has done so much for me even when times were tough with my family. this sex offender thing has gotten way out of hand. plus if you have never met him, you have no right to say hes a bad guy. i have had many coaches at aerials and paul pushed me the hardest and has gotten be to the places ive been. and for a coach who got fired at this gym and saying these bad things just makes you the worst person bc you have no respect. great coach, who coaches great gymnast.

I just wanted everyone to know that these positive reviews are being written by employees at the request of Paul Hagan the s e x offender. Most are actually written by Paul himself and are nothing more than poorly written commercials for his gym. As an employee I was asked to write positive reviews of Paul and his gym to counter what was being said. But I happen to know that these reviews are very tame compared to what really happened. I left after one of the girls he molested told me what happened to her.

despite what other more accusing people say aerials and Baranis it is a safe environment for anybody. It is my second home. I love everyone there. I spend countless hours with Paul and his daughters along with many other team members. I have never felt threatened and Paul has personally sat me down and told me the truth about EVERYTHING. I have been to every and I mean every gym in Michigan including radiant sportz nothing can compare to aerials and baranis

I have been to Aerials & Baranis once in my life. And that was to geta new leo. And I saw the gym there. I think it is the largest gym and the best gym I have ever seen. I would ask my mom but then I heard about there owner. Thier owner is a SEX OFFENDER!!! I couldnt belive that parents actully let there kids go to this place. Parents of gymnast of aerials and baranis pull your kids out and take them to a safer place like mabey north star gymnastics.

I have been a part of A & B for more than 12 years as a coach and judge. I have been to many gyms throughout the nation, and has one of the best! I can tell you that I completely, 100% trust my children with Paul! It is obvious to me that some have some axe to grind for one reason or another, but all is out of ignorance. Did you ever get the whole story? Ask him! It wasn't a helpless 5 yr old! And for the straight up LIES that I have seen on this about him making comments about students like that is just sick! You are worse than he is! And his wife is one of the most amazing people showing the rest of the world that people can make bad choices, reconcile with their LIFE LONG commitment to their spouse called marriage! Forgiveness is very healing -try it! If you talk to him, and hear personal testimonies by others DIRECTLY involved (unlike some posers on this site) and the nearly 15 years of his life he has not had ANY issues after (or before) the incident with a young lady (not truly a child), nothing will change your mind... So go on and stay angry and ignorant and rant more on pages like these!

Actually, Paul Hagan is one of the most kindest, hardest working person you will ever meet in your life. Every accusation that the person left on here is an absolute lie. Yes, he is on the sex offenders list, but its been taking way out of context.
If you want to know the story he is more than welcome to tell you the story himself.

So parents, please do not listen to the bogus stuff that you hear. Aerials and Baranis is a top gymnastics facility, led by awesome coaches who want your kids to learn.

You will not be dissapointed.

As a former employee I happen to know Paul Hagan and his family quite well. Paul is definitely not a trustworthy around children and his wife knows it but sticks up for him anyway. Toward the end of my employment with him he kept talking about girls in and their body parts in very inappropriate suggestive ways. He is certainly still a threat to kids. I quit because of it. And when I did he told all the parents that I wasn't safe around their kids. He does this to many of his former coaches and employees.

fyi - The owner, PAUL HAGAN, was convicted of molesting a 13 yr old gymnast when he was 29 yrs old. He is on the Michigan S e x Offender registry. Now he manages the gym and found a loop hole in the system by allowing his wife to own the gym. I know the victim and several former employees. I am begging you all as parents to find another gym. This man is seriously ill and will strike again. His wife is crazy to stay married to him after what he did to that poor gymnast. PEOPLE - do your homework before you send your kids off to this place. PAUL HAGAN - registered s e x offender. Do you want him near your kids?
