  1. Go to the Gatorade Gym.

    Heading towards the quest marker above will officially get this side quest started.

  2. Speak to the Gatorade Rep.

    By doing so, the Gym Rat Quest objectives are revealed.

  3. Make sure you mix up your workouts.

    The workouts include: Acceleration, Speed, Stamina, Strength, and Vertical.

  4. Earn 3 stars or more on any workout 25 times.

    Once players have strung together 25 three-star workouts, they will receive the Gym Rat Badge.

Upon completing a workout, players will be unable to repeat the same one for seven days. You do have the option to warm up before making it count, and we suggest you do in order to make the most of your workouts. And yes, we are talking about practice.

Otherwise, that’s all there is to it with regards to earning the Gym Rat Badge in NBA 2K23. If you’re ever unsure as to how much longer you’ll have to wait, just check the very handy Weekly Workout Checklist. In need of other things to do while waiting to work out again?
