The Gym Rat badge in NBA 2K21 will give you a permanent boost to your physical attributes. Once you unlock the badge, you will get +4 for your stamina, strength, speed, and acceleration. This will effectively allow you to skip the Gatorade Training Center to upgrade those attributes for your player. In this guide, we will explain the fastest way to unlock and get Gym Rat in NBA 2K21.
What is Gym Rat?
Gym Rat is an unlockable and permanent boost for your character. Each week, you can get a bonus to your physical attributes by going to the Gatorade Training Center and completing challenges in your workout. Getting the Gym Rat upgrade will allow you to bypass this and get a permanent stat boost. This is automatically applied to your character once you complete the requirements to unlock it.
How to get a gym rat in 2K
You get the Gym Rat badge in 2K by winning a championship in My Career. However, there are certain requirements to do so. You can't just fake through games. You must play a minimum of 40 games in the regular season before heading to the playoffs and winning the championship. Once you have won the championship, you will see that you have Gym Rat AND you will still have the +4 buff to your physical attributes.
Once you've played between 40 and 45 games, you can fake your way to the playoffs and then you have to win the championship to get the badge.
