Idle Fitness Gym Tycoon Guide and Walkthrough

Build More Exercise Rooms

When you begin Idle Fitness Gym Tycoon you will only have a running area which will allow you to install treadmills. To expand your gym so you can add more facilities will require you to build more excercise rooms to cater for them. The following is a list of the excercise areas you can build one by one.

• Running

• Bench Press

• Spinning

• Boxing

• Rowing

• X Fit

• Sit-Ups

• Weights

Always Check your Stats Tab

Constantly check your Stats tab to see where you can improve your gym to make it more popular for customers. You will be able to quickly see which facility needs revamping by looking at the colour of the face next to it as this represents how well that area is doing. A happy green face means that the area is doing well while a unhappy yellow face tells you that the area needs improvement. Once you discovered the problem you will need to invest money to get it sorted out as quickly as possible. It will usually be a case of installing more machines or reducing the training speed so that customers can train quickly.


To enter the various competitions requires athletes. These are obtained by tapping the athlete avatar at the bottom-right corner of the screen and selecting either the option to hire new athletes or train hired athletes. These athletes can then attend a certain number of training sessions a day with the goal of developing them to win a competiton. Each athlete has four different attributes - speed, agility, strength, and resistance and you send them to competitions accordingly.

Complete the Missions

At the top right corner of the screen is an exclamation mark button which will allow you to access your Missions. You will always have three missions at any given time which you should focus on completing as they are there to lead you down the main progression route. They are also worthwhile doing as each one you complete will reward you with gems.


The Premium currency in Idle Fitness Gym Tycoon is gems and they are given out as competition rewards depending on the tier positoin (Tier 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6) of your athlete. After you have sent an athlete to a competition a new screen will appear that will enable you to keep track of them. Gems can be used to buy Epic upgrades.

• 50 Gems - Tier 1 (Gold Trophy)

• 25 Gems - Tier 2 (Silver Trophy)

• 10 Gems - Tier 3 (Bronze Trophy)

• 5 Gems - Tier 4

• 5 Gems - Tier 5

• 5 Gems - Tier 6

Buy Epic Upgrades

Each of the different exercise facilities you can add to your gym has its own set of upgrades that increase its efficiency and money making potential. There are also 'Epic' upgrades which will provide a substantial boost to the area they are given to. There are two types of Epic ugrades - Instructor and Research, and both are permanent. The Instructor will reduce the training time of the facility while the Resercher will increase profits by 2% with each upgrade. Although it costs more gems to buy it is more beneficial to get the Instructor upgrade across your training facilities as it will multiply that station's income by 1.5 times.

Return Every 2 Hours

Unless you have hired a general manager to watch over your gym for you it is important to remember when you let the idle part of the game come in and take over that you return every 2 hours. By default your gym will only make money for two hours, once you hit this cap it will no longer make any profits until you return and collect your earnings. Hiring a general manager which is extremely costly will increase the cap from 2 hours to 10 hours.

Currency Figures

The currency figures in Idle Fitness Gym Tycoon can be confusing, you need to pay attention to them - q, Q, s, S, d, D. For example, 1q is not equal to 1Q, 1q is 1000T. Double check the amount of money you have if you think you have enough but the upgrade button is greyed out. The list of currency is as follows:

• Million – M

• Billion – B

• Trillion – T

• Quadrillions – q

• Qunitllion – Q

• Sextillions – s

• Septillions – S

• Decillions – d

• Duodeceillionss – D

Focus on Best Exercise Areas

There are eight different types of exercise facilities you can unlock (see list above). Every new exercise area that you unlock has the potential to make you more money than the previous one. Always focus on trying to unlock the next exercise facility on the list so you can earn more money upgrading it.

Run Marketing Campaigns

The best way to attract more customers to your gym is to run the marketing campaigns. This feature is accessed by tapping the announcement horn icon at the top of the screen. There you will be able to improve the brand image of your gym and run the ad campaigns which will include radio, TV, press, and social media. Each ad campaign will run for a certain amount of time and will have a different cost, the higher the fee the more customers you attact.

Install Vending Machines

Another source of income in Idle Fitness Gym Tycoon are vending machines which you can install in your gym for the customers to purchase goods. The number of vending machines you can install will depend on your renovation level and you can easily collect the cash from them periodically by tapping the money symbol when it appears above them.

The VIP Sponsor Offer

Every once in a while in Idle Fitness Gym Tycoon the VIP Sponsor's offer will appear. If you tap the guy next to the counter or tap his icon on the top-right side of the screen when it does and then proceed to watch the video you are presented with you will earn a decent amount of cash.

Start the VIP Campaign

If you tap the 'Video Play' icon that is at the bottom-center of the screen and watch the video you are presented with you start the VIP Campaign. This will allow you to get 2x earnings during the time the video is running and also a free gem pack by watching six video advertisements.
