For many of us, leveling up our Sims’ fitness skills in The Sims 4 is among some of the first things we do. There is nothing like loading into a game, letting autonomy take control, and immediately finding our Sims doing pushups or going for a job. As you progress through the Bodybuilder aspiration, you’ll eventually encounter the “reach maximum body potential” task. However, doing this isn’t as easy as going for jogs all the time! If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover how to reach your Sim’s maximum body potential in The Sims 4.
How to Reach Maximum Body Potential in The Sims 4
The first step to reaching your Sim’s maximum body potential is to exercise! More specifically, you’re looking for a workout routine combining cardio and strength. The goal is to burn fat and gain muscle simultaneously rather than just doing one or the other. One way to do this is to use a treadmill and a weight machine rather than just one or the other. Alternatively, you can go to the gym and use the equipment there!

To speed up the process, you’ll want to make sure you’re energized while working out. You can do this by drinking coffee, taking a brisk shower or researching workout tips on the computer. Happy moodlets will also boost it, so keep your Sim’s needs high! While your Sim isn’t required to become energized, it’ll help you increase their fitness skill and reach their maximum potential much faster.
Reaching Maximum Body Potential With Elderly Sims
One obstacle you may face is attempting to reach maximum body potential with an older Sim. If your Sim works out too long, they’ll eventually get a tired moodlet that prevents them from working out for longer than a couple of hours. Alongside taking the advice above to become Very Energized, you can also take baths to help get rid of this debuff faster. If you have an expensive bathtub like the Jet Set Luxury Bath, Triteia Luxury Bath or Princess Cordelia’s Bathtub, you’ll have a much easier time minimizing this tired mood and getting back into your workout.
