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

Prize: Activewear

Where can I find it? In the wardrobe, under outfits for a male and female adult sims

Cost? Free

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!

Watch my step by step video of this quest here:


please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Build the health hub to start this quest

Does the time limit start when I click to build or once the building has complete?
Once it has finished building the quest and time limit will begin

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start building the health hub you don’t have to do this quest at all but if you have already started building or started this quest you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

How do I send my sim to the health hub?
Go to the health hub and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker, this post explains more about the simtracker

The trashcan has already been knocked over, what do I do?
Select the clean up option then you can knock it over

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
Activewear outfits

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the aerobics hobby before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

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 building the health hub you don’t have to do this quest but once it is built the quest will begin

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

  1. 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?

  2. 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. 🙂

  3. 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

  4. 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” 🙂

  5. 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?

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. I have a question. I have some sims excersising together, but they all are wearing the same clothes. How can i change that?

  9. 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!

  10. 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

  11. 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?

  12. 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 😦

  13. 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…

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. 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?

  17. 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?

  18. 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!

  19. Hi again!
    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!
