The Sims 4 Bodybuilder Aspiration
Milestones and The Long Lived Reward Trait
by Tom "Metro" Schlueter
Mentoring Requires you to know the Sim a Little, so Try a Few Socials First
Overview and Set Up
Bodybuilder is one of the easier Aspirations to complete. There are no career requirements in any of the Aspiration Milestones, so if you plan on keeping a Bodybuilder around for awhile, then it may be a good idea to have a money making utility Sim in the household. The Long Lived reward trait is a nice one, especially if you plan on your Bodybuilder completing more Aspirations, pursuing careers, etc.
I gave my Bodybuilder some straightforward traits: Active (to frequently get Energized), Loves Outdoors (for an added buff with all the jogging), and Outgoing (to help with making a few friends).
Stage I - Basic Trainer
- Work Out for 8 Hours (50 Satisfaction)
- Work Out at a Gym Venue (50 Satisfaction)
The first Milestone is a simple "two birds with one stone" kind of deal - just go to the gym and start exercising. Try and complete as many Whims as you can early on so you can pick up the Gym Rat reward. With the reward you'll actually boost the fun bar while working out at the gym and you'll not get as stinky.

Stage II - Exercise Demon
- Achieve Level 4 Fitness Skill (300 Satisfaction)
- Push the Limits for One Hour While Energized (250 Satisfaction)
- Own 2 Pieces of Workout Equipment (300 Satisfaction)
With the second Milestone you may not see the Push the Limits option on a piece of gear if you are already Energized. One trick is to click another Sim while Energized and workout with them. An easy way to accomplish the equipment portion of this Milestone is buying 2 punching bags, going into Live Mode, and then selling them to recoup most of your money.
Stage III - Fit to a T
- Achieve Level 6 Fitness skill (500 Satisfaction)
- Go Jogging for 2 Total Hours (350 Satifaction)
- Spend 10 Hours exercising (500 Satisfaction)
Choose harder workout options when you jog or use gym equipment to build the Fitness skill faster to bring you closer to skill level 6.
Stage IV - Bodybuilder
- Reach Level 10 Fitness Skill (1250 Satisfaction)
- Reach Sims' Maximum Body Potential (1500 Satisfaction)
I had accumulated 4000 Satisfaction to get the Savant reward which helped with the last 2 Fitness skill levels. And again, always choose the higher level workout options such as Epic Workout as they increase the skill gain a bit.
I did a little research on the Long Lived reward trait. Apparently it only kicks in once you are an Elder and it's clear from various players submitting info that there is variation on how much time can be tacked on. I read a thread on the official forums that someone's Long Lived Sim on Normal lifespan ended up seeing two grandkids completely grow up. That's a pretty good chunk of added time.
Sims with the Long Lived Trait May Live Different Lengths
Now that my Bodybuilder finished the Aspiration he has been awarded the Long Lived trait. You may notice he is also an Elder, so big question is - exactly how long will he live?
