Is the Gym Rat Badge in NBA 2K24? Answered

The short answer is yes and no, players can receive the Gym Rat Badge in NBA 2K24, but not on next-gen consoles. For whatever reason, it did not make it into 2K24. However, the Gatorade Training Facility did. Therefore, there are plenty of workouts to experience with a different set of rewards.

Likewise, just because there isn’t a badge to earn doesn’t mean your player can’t improve. In fact, the workout system runs similarly to last year. Every week, players have the opportunity to do up to five workouts that can benefit different areas of their game. Once they have completed five workouts for the week, they must wait seven days to train at the facility again.

Even still, badges are there to earn at the Gatorade Training Facility. Not to mention, the Turbo Meter returns as well. In order to receive an extra boost, you’ll have to achieve three stars or more on all five of your workouts that week.

There are 12 workouts in total to try, and they’ll help you to improve in the following categories:

  • Acceleration
  • Speed
  • Stamina
  • Strength
  • Vertical
