Decided to hop into the athletic career? Maybe you’re just a fitness nut for the fun? Perhaps you even want to get ripped? But who wants to progress normally? There are two kinds of people in the sim world my friends.There are Pro Athletes and then there are Powerhouses.
Sims with the Powerhouse trait have several pros and a few cons but it makes it all worth while to get that six pack and flex those muscles off to the ladies or even the fellas.
As a Powerhouse, you learn the fitness skill at a rapid rate of approximately 170%. That’s not quite double, but 70% faster than your average athlete. You’re a beast after all! Sims with this trait will have a little harder time keeping relationships high due to their enthrallment of working out, but not at an overwhelming rate. Despite having a little trouble managing friendships, Powerhouses rely much less on socialization as they are too busy working out. Because of their high endurance and constant need to keep going, they make sleep a minor convenience and are wonderful woohoo partners.
With every pro comes a con and the Powerhouse is no exception. Their hygiene tends to decay much more quickly than the average sim. They need to bathe in a bathtub every once in awhile, not just sweat, you know? Friendships also decay a little faster than normal. But honestly, with that pumped up reflection in the mirror and workout equipment to talk to, do you really need all those friends?
