The story behind our program
Robert “Blastoff” Esmie aka SpeedDoctor
BIO AND OVERVIEW
I was born in Jamaica, home of the world’s best sprinters, and raised in Sudbury, Ontario. Throughout my journey of coaching myself in the 95/96 season, I dedicated the first 25 years of my life to my passion: running FAST, which led me to:
🏅 Olympic Gold Medalist (1996)
🏅 World Championships Gold Medalist (1995, 1997)
🏅 Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist (1994)
🏅 World Indoor Games 60m
🏅 Bronze Medalist (1995)
🏅 Can Track & Field Championships Gold (1996, 1997)
🏅Canadian Olympic Committee Hall of Fame
🏅Canadian Sports Hall of Fame.
As my career wound down in 2004, I started to get referrals from doctors to rehab their distance runners and teach them proper techniques within 4-6 weeks. From there came great results and more referrals for other sports. That was when I knew I was passionate about coaching and when I started to coach.
My next 25 years, leading to today, have been dedicated to helping others achieve their dreams. By educating and teaching them how to BLASTOFF. Learn more about Robert Esmie at www.robertesmie.com .
