@EchoKix I can duplicate this to some extent. They do stop for me when needs are low and the punching bag still gets a timer. Can't say if they stopped cause of low hygiene though or cause of the timer.

That has also occasionally happened to me. They'll only stop if their hygiene gets extremely low. Do you also have a problem of Sims randomly stopping what they're doing to do push ups, sit ups, or stretch even if they don't have the Active trait or they're feeling energetic?

@000Unavailable Do you have Eco ? It can happen if the appropriate NAP is active that makes them do that (should not be played Sims though, just NAPs).

I've had a similar experience where they stop for needs. One Sim took6  hours to stop so I'd call that a hug. I've had this happen with2  households and3  Sims on the same save file. 

Thing is: if they don't finish, they don't get the buffs or advance in aspirations like " work out push the limits" they have to finish the work out naturally. Did you do commando? That was the boxing that never stopped.

 

I have eco but that specific NAP isn't active.

@EchoKix Do you also still have random push-ups/stretching for non-active/non-energized Sim ? My question was about that, not about the issue you described in your OP.

Unfortunately, I have been having this problem since before Eco, but I think more often with that one. I'm assuming it happens if the Sim's Fitness skill gets pretty high, but I haven't double checked yet. Will do and I'll let you know. I think it happens with most Sims though if they're feeling energized and you're not currently playing that household, which I'm guessing must be a normal thing that's been set up for them to do.

@000Unavailable Yes, if they're energized, that's what they do, not a bug.

I noticed that with SE, everyone is energized a lot.

That is so true. I also noticed that when you have the lot trait "Sunny Aspect" they get energized more than inspired or anything else.

I've seen this on PS4 from time to time. It usually happens when the sim has an energized buff that fades while exercising. Exercise is also not the only interaction that gets affected by dropping buffs.
