If the client has shorter term goals, the fitness adviser should recommend safer as well as less volatile activities with shorter time spans.  Such activities could include dietary and overall nutritional goals, safer but higher output activities that solicit quicker but still within the parameters of safe results.  While these investments generally have higher returns, the volatility of such actions while under stringent monitoring and supportive care are less likely to show loss of overall principal values.  Short term fitness investments can guard against loss of enthusiasm and participation.  If unrealistic values and goals are factored due to a clients’ persistence, these could erode the overall values completely leaving a client in worse condition than initially introduced.
