2013 SEMA Show: 2013 Toyota RAV4 designed by LifeTime Fitness

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 5, 2013

Built especially for triathletes, this 2013 RAV4 designed by LifeTime Fitness and Team Toyota triathletes Sarah Haskins, Andy Potts and Hunter Kemper will be seen at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas on Nov. 5 to 8. This 2013 RAV4 has been tweaked to offer the tired triathlete a vehicle that is practical as well as soothing to aching muscles.

In addition, the model also offers training intelligence. The custom features were added by the Motorsports Technical Center in Torrance, Calif., including a hot water shower with a 5-gallon fresh water tank, a spin dryer and gear storage compartments mounted in the rear cargo area. The athlete could put his wetsuit into the drain and then get a shiatsu massage in the front seat while he pores over race statistics and tracking data at the integrated iPad.

For an even higher level of relaxation, the athlete can quench his thirst with drinks from a refrigerator in the rear seat located near the Blendtec® blender. There’s also a cupboard filled with snacks. The RAV4 is fitted with a wireless Bluetooth speaker.

It has a custom roof rack to keeps two bikes secure but still accessible. Haskins said that this RAV4 meets the triathlete’s requirements as he aims for a “healthy, active lifestyle” and become both smarter and faster. He said that the vehicle has “cutting-edge tools” that allows for relaxation as well as a way to improve their racing skills.

Haskins was on the 2008 U.S. Olympic triathlon team. She has had 29 professional wins and is considered one of the foremost female triathletes in the U.S. Meanwhile, Kemper is a four-time member of the U.S. Olympic triathlon team and is actually the most decorated U.S. triathlete in history.

Potts was part of the 2004 Olympic team and was the winner of the Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro and the 2007 Ironman 70.3 World Championship. So if you’re into swimming, biking, and running, you’re guaranteed to love this RAV4.
