Updated for the seasons patch. Jogging with your dog also fulfills the "go for a jog" assignment.
If you still run into any problems, please let me know in the comments.

Hello Everyone!

This is the third mod of my collection of "Work from Home" mods (I have already made a Painter and a Writer version.)

This mod enables the "work from home" option for the athlete career. Working from home has the same mechanism that came with City Living careers. You will get a notification 1 hour before work where you can choose from sending your sim to work, working from home or taking PTO. Then you get two assignments if you choose the "work from home" option. A few examples of these assignments are below.

Athlete (before choosing a branch)
  • perform group dance (if you have the Get Together EP)
  • show off dance moves (if you have the Get Together EP)
  • go for a jog
  • workout in the gym
  • discuss fitness
  • different types of workout (treadmill, punching bag)

Professional athlete
  • play basketball
  • perform jumps on the jumpstand by the pool (if you have the Get Together EP)
  • go for a jog
  • socialize with co-workers
  • different types of workout (treadmill, punching bag)
  • study opponents

  • mentor sims in fitness
  • make healthy food (protein shake, if you have the Spa Day GP: carob cake, superfood salad)
  • do yoga (if you have the Spa Day GP)
  • go for a jog
  • showing off muscles
  • different types of workout (treadmill, punching bag)
  • discuss fitness

Your sim will get the same amount of money they would get by working a whole workday in the traditional way. One assignment grants half the daily wage since you get two assignments every day.

The levels, skill requirements, work days and wages per hour (if you choose to send your sim to work) remain the same as they were without any mods.

If you have the Get Together EP, I recommend using the club features. You can have a dedicated workplace (club hangout) and the co-worker assignments are easier to complete if you create a club that only allows sims from the athlete career. You can also benefit from the club perks (like skill boosts and energized atmosphere). It also has great story telling potential, I made a club for my low level athletes and the desired activity is dancing (Athlete career's fourth level is Dance Team Captain and the game provides a pretty good outfit that you can use as club uniform).
