I agree with both Michael and Bryant. It depends why you want to hire a trainer. If you want someone to follow your philosophy and guide him/her the way you think fits best your company, then an inexperienced trainer might be a better choice. If you want someone who has a proven record and can bring new ideas and experience to your team and needs little or no supervision, then a trainer with more experience will be the way to go. With an experienced trainer you pretty much know what you are getting, but with an inexperienced trainer it can go both ways (more likely towards the unknown). You will have to devote more of your time to train and educate this trainer and then he/she will need to be supervised to make sure things are going the way you want. Getting an experienced trainer can help with the promotion of your club/business and you can take advantage of the experience and knowledge this trainer brings. There are pros and cons in both choices and it’s up to you to decide what is best for your business.
