Gym Rat in NBA 2K23 is a Badge that enhances different attributes such as Acceleration, Speed, Strength, Vertical, and Stamina by +4 points. Since it is arguably one of the best Badges in the game, we highly recommend acquiring it at the earliest. The process of doing so is fairly simple.


Unlocking the Gym Rat Badge is a simple process. To begin, you need to travel to The City where you will be able to accept an optional quest. Please note that you cannot accept this quest on PS4 and Xbox unless you have already acquired the Mamba Mentality.

After accepting it, you need to travel to the Gatoride Gym. Before heading inside, talk to the representative standing outside. Once done, you will need to complete a total of 25 exercises at the Gatoride Gym with at least 3-stars.

These exercises are split into 5 categories which are listed below:

  • Acceleration: Agility Ladder and Agility Hurdles.
  • Speed: Sprint and Treadmill.
  • Stamina: Battle Ropes and Medicine Ball.
  • Strength: Bench Press, Squats, and Dumbbells.
  • Vertical: Box Jump, Clean Lift, and Leg Press.

You need to complete a total of 25 exercises with at least 3-stars in order to become the Gym Rat. It is a good idea to complete the exercises that you are good at. Another important thing that you need to note is that you must wait 7 real-life days in order to attempt an exercise again. After you have collected all the stars, you will unlock it.
