This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Exercise equipment in the 3 metal colours - Light to match the 'Exerto Butterfly Exercise Machine', Grey to match the 'Exerto Punching Bag' & Dark, doesn't match anything, I just wanted to add it. The cushions come in 3 colours - PB Red to match the 'Exerto Punching Bag', MP Green to match the 'Exerto 5000 Multipress Exercise Machine' & EM Blue to match the 'The Exerto Butterfly Exercise Machine' which also recolours the Exerto Free Press Exercise Machine & the Exerto Leg Extension Exercise Machine. As the 'Exerto Punching Bag' only has 1 sub set it comes in 8 colour combinations. If your Sim is not in a Sports Career but wants the Exerto Punching Bag you can do what I do and use the "unlockCareerRewards" cheat.

Oh! if you haven't figured it out yet and are wondering what the initials stand for, EE - Exercise Equipment, EM - Exercise Machine, MP - Multipress & PB - Punching Bag.

These are NOT all Base Game compatible so I have put which EP, you need installed, beside the name.

Exerto Punching Bag - Base Game:
Found: Live Mode > Rewards > Career Rewards.

Exerto 5000 Multipress Exercise Machine - Base Game:
Found: Buy mode > Hobbies > Exercise. Price: §1,400.

Exerto Butterfly Exercise Machine - University:
Found: Buy mode > Hobbies > Exercise. Price: §900.

Fearless Flyin' 4000 Treadmill - University:

ElectroDance Sphere by ExtremeCO - Nightlife:

I think i enjoy your recolors more than the recolors of anyone else. Whether it's hairs or objects. I especially like your recolors of these exercise equipment because they still look like the colors exercise equipment would be. Thank you so much Michelle.

@Morbidmuch - Sorry to hear that hun, can you give me a little more information please.
Do you have the latest CEP installed?
Is it all the recolours that don't show up?
Have you tried re-downloading and re-installing them?
Have you tried shortening the files names?
Any other information you can give me would be appreciated.
