Robert “Blastoff” Esmie aka SpeedDoctor 


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 lead me to:

Olympic Gold Medalist (1996)

World Championships Gold Medalist (1995, 1997)

Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist (1994)

World Indoor Games 60m Bronze Medalist (1995)

Canadian Track and Field Championships Gold Medalist (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 a 4-6 weeks time span. From there came great results and more referrals for other sports and that was when I knew I was passionate to start coaching.

Now, my next 25 years are dedicated to helping others achieve their dreams. By educating and teaching them how to BLASTOFF.

Need for Speed Academy created from life learnt lessons through our 5 F-SYSTEM:



The concept for Airblastoff Sports was taken from Robert's life experiences of growing up in a single-parent, one-income family. His mother was not 100% sure how she would pay for his education. and she worked overtime as often as possible, to help make her kids' dreams become a reality.

Despite this, he had a plan of his own, which involved taking a $1,500 loan from his education funds 

that his mother had been working so hard to save. Back then, post-secondary education cost about $40,000 for 4 years (now it costs approximately $100,000+ for a 4-year education). 

He used the money to design posters in order to raise funds for access to coaches and trainers needed to supplement his athletic dreams.

It's Robert's strong belief that if your child possesses basic talent, certain important physical and mental attributes, and carries a (B) average or higher, he/she will have a very good chance at receiving scholarships to study and carry out their student and athletic dreams at the University or College level.

This is what we refer to as the 3 A-SYSTEM:
