QUEST IS COMPLETE!
Once you complete this quest the Aerobics Hobby Event will begin, there is a time limit of 7 days and each time you complete the hobby collection you will earn another activewear outfit for your male and female adult sims- there are 7 packs to earn. I’m not sure why there is a time limited hobby event as soon as we unlock the new Aerobics hobby- usually when we unlock a new hobby we just have to complete it once in a time limit to earn an extra prize so this is very difficult!
You can also now clean up the bathroom/changing room at the Health Hub:
- Leaky Roof- 10 hours 25 minutes
- Trash- 5 hours 5 minutes x2
- Trash- 5 hours 15 minutes
Where can I find it? In the wardrobe, under outfits for a male and female adult sims
Is it worth it? I always love new clothes but if you don’t manage to complete in the time limit don’t worry as you can earn more activewear in the aerobics hobby event!

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal
Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post
This quest unlocks the aerobics hobby event, does the time limit start straight away once I have completed this quest?
Yes, the time limit for the hobby starts straight away once this quest is complete, you can click no when the hobby pop up appears but this does not stop the timer going down

Have they given a release date for this?
Its already out, build the Health Hub to start the quest.
What happens when you can’t get the dance quest finished? Mine went halfway 6 months ago and then quit. The car never shows up at the park. I’m level 55 and can’t get the sorcerers place nor this health club started. I also can’t seem to contact tech support via firemonkeys. Any suggestions?
Have you tried to contact them as this is the only way you will be able to get this issue fixed, this post explains how to contact them, step by step: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2016/05/29/the-sims-freeplay-contacting-ea-firemonkeys/
I also had this problem, I finished the quest though. I deleted the game and then redownloaded it and click use saved data. I hope this solves your problem.
Thank you for posting this! You’re so helpful and I love knowing what is coming up next instead of going into this blind. Happy New Year to you. Here’s to happy simming in 2017. 🙂
You’re very welcome! Happy New Year to you too, I hope its a good one! 🙂
I wish I’d found your blog and video sooner! Thank u so much! The cooking grind has made life so much simpler. I’m getting LP’s like candy! Keep up the great work, hun! xx
You’re very welcome! 🙂
Question: What’s the point of having 5 Step Mats in the Health Hub if you can only use 1?
The other 4 can be used but only for 10 minutes, its like the main sim is taking a class but those sims aren’t doing the hobby.
That aerobics hobby is brutal; nearly 5 hours for each play, and a 7-day time-limit. It’s impossible to get all outfits without using LPs within the time period. Guess I’ll have to go heavy with my “cooking parties” 🙂
Tell me about it! Not going well so far, I’m only on level 4 with 4 days left! 😦
Ughhhh. I have completed the quest, won the prize of workout clothes and my new timed aerobics hobby has started and I have to clean the bathrooms. Do you know if the hobby will come back again in a few months?
Lets hope they bring the event back one day! I really don’t think I am going to be able to finish it in the time!
I just want to say thank you for your whole blog. I can’t imagine how much time and energy you must put into it and everything you post is so helpful!
You’re very welcome!
Hi. I made it to the Aerobics challenge and just noticed there is debris in the side yard of the building. A couple of fallen branches and a rock with weeds. I can’t get a Sim to clean it up. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks!
I don’t think they can be cleaned up.
Hey I can’t see this anywhere can you help? Thanks!!!
You will need to build the health hub to begin this discovery quest.
I have a question. I have some sims excersising together, but they all are wearing the same clothes. How can i change that?
If you unlock the new outfits in this hobby then you will be able to put your sims into those and then they will exercise in that workout outfit instead of the same outfit.
quest is complete
I just did this quest a couple of weeks ago and I’m glad I waited I had on sim on the longest hobby and they jumped to level 3 after the first go. Thank gooodness I had another on the shorter one because that’s the only way to unlock level 2 prizes. My first sim did only the longest hobby and got to level 6 in just over a day. I actually got all outfits maxing out the number of sims who could do this hobby on day 2. I hope this is permanent because then the hobby prizes are attainable.
Yes, it seems they listened and made levelling up easier, and the aerobics event is coming back soon for those of us who weren’t able to complete it the first time due to the levelling up issue!
Please help me! I am still doing my dance to remember quest and this grooving guru suddenly starts. What do I do? I still have a long way until dance to remember finishes but the time limit is already started 😦 i havent even built the health hub bcs the quest havent finish
Did you just get a pop up about the groovers n movers time limited hobby event starting? Don’t worry about it, you aren’t ready to do it so just ignore it, the event will probably be back again one day in the future, they usually reappear a lot so you can do it when you are ready.
I SEEE! THANK YOUUU
Hi can you do an updated version for this? Thank you so much.
Which parts need updating? Sorry I can’t update it unless I’m told what has changed as I have already completed this quest on my game!
This quest start at the same time with nanny knows better. Meanwhile I couldn’t build the health hub before I finishing nanny knows better. As result I couldn’t complete this quest because I didn’t have much lps to speed up nanny’s know better quest. How could that happen? That’s so mean. It should be started after the health hub is built. You could never complete it in time this way. Unless you have tons of lps. Can you give me solution to complete this without lps? Or maybe I shouldn’t update the app before I complete namny quest?
The grooving guru quest didn’t start, you just got a pop up for the time limited aerobics hobby event that had begun: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2017/11/27/the-sims-freeplay-groovers-n-movers-2-hobby-event/ everyone playing gets this pop up but as you aren’t ready for that you can just ignore it, they repeat time limited hobby events a lot so it will probably be back again one day when you can complete it.
If you need to earn LPs then read this post, it may help: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2015/01/14/the-sims-freeplay-how-do-i-have-so-many-lps/
What’s frustrating is the complete useless of the space. There are 4 steps you can’t use for completing the quest and all the other machines don’t serve any purpose. I would rather have sort of Police station work space for making my Sim the ultimate workout trainer 😦
Hi my steps are totally different wonder if you could write down the new steps… I totally understand that this was a year ago which you wrote and have also mentioned that you will try to keep up with it so yes I just wanted to let you know that it has been changed. Thanks a lot your steps told before hand help a lot…
I have just completed the quest again today and none of the tasks or times have changed, what is different on your game?
Hi, for the hobby event do you have to complete all seven to get the seven outfits or do you receive one set of male and female outfits each time you get to level 6 of the hobby. Hope this makes sense? Xx
You have to complete the hobby collection 7 times to earn all the outfits, you only have to reach level 6 once to unlock all the moves.
Hi do you know the time and money required to spruce up the health hub? U have a similar post regarding the restaurant but I can’t find any regarding the health hub.
Sorry I haven’t had a chance to create this post yet, I will add that to my to do list. I’m not sure on timings right now but the only cost is for the health hub when you first build it, cleaning the health hub doesn’t cost anything
Hey, thanks for your blogs, they really help… I would like to address something here if you don’t mind, with no offense whatsoever. In your comment above,
I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it
I don’t think it works that way, because once the health club is built, the quest begins. Just like all the other places, it instantly has you doing something, so I don’t think that this really applies here… many times I have built a place with a quest, and it has started the quest once you tap to finalize build on the place. According to your comment in the beginning, quest begins after building health club. I am confused, how can you skip the quest if it has auto begun?
Sorry I didn’t word it very well, it should say ‘if you don’t start building the health hub you don’t have to do the quest’ I will update the post
Thank you so much for making this blog! I was just wondering if the hobby after completing the quest counts as a part of the discovery quest or if you can do another discovery quest when you are doing the aerobic hobby?
You’re welcome! No the hobby doesn’t count as a discovery quest, once you unlock the hobby you can start another quest
I always use your blog posts when I am trying to figure out which hobby event to do and how to plan out the tasks so thank you so much for all your work! I wanted to let you know that I believe the times for some tasks may have changed. When I went to use the cross trainer (the second task) it only took 14 minutes not the 5 hours! I am using a teen sim who has the pregnancy bonus so I’m not sure if that impacts anything but I thought I would let you know!
Thanks for letting me know!
Just wanted to give an update. I’m currently going through this quest hoping to somehow catch the Street Smarts event. I noticed that the 3rd step was 15 minutes for me rather than 5h40. Took a screen capture so let me know if you want it 🙂 No other differences up to the “snore in bed” task!
A few more differences I noticed:
– using the rowing machine (push it to the limit) was 15m instead of 25m
– sending dance party invitations was 4m and the dance party was 7h30 rather than 5m and 8h30, respectively, but those might be related to the star rating
Yes those ones are probably due to the star rating
Thanks for letting me know and I would love the screenshots of all the changes if you have them, my email to send them to can be found on this page: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/contact-me/
Thank you so much!
I do have pics of the differences at the venue but not the star-related ones unfortunately. There weren’t any after the ones I noted in my 2nd comment here. It’ll be my pleasure to send them to you 🙂
Thanks again for sending those, the post is now up to date thanks to you 🙂
You’re very welcome!
