SPEEDKILLS …since 1998 (OVER 200 scholarships)

22 Year Anniversary!  22nd Year of Speed Success!



Los Angeles Times • Daily Pilot Football Dream Team: 
Coach of the Year – Jimmy Nolan • Fountain Valley

Happy 2020! Many athletes in todays football culture have convinced themselves that year round passing league games are a smart off-season replacement for weight room and speed work. Many prefer the year-round games because “it’s more fun.” I’m not telling you to stop having fun, I’m advising you to do the necessary work to be better at passing league ~ and if you’re a wise footballer ~ prepare for the actual game (the game where you have to block and tackle, or beat a block and break/shake a tackle).

In all sports, we’re told “you gotta get bigger-faster-stronger” in the offseason…I agree with that. If you want to get noticed by a college (especially if you desire a D1 college), make no mistake: you need to get faster-faster-faster. Not many scouts care about a high school kids bench press or squat; they know once they have you, they can add strength and size. What they’re looking for is athleticism: not just straight ahead track speed; they want to see you change directions, explode to second/third gear, display balance, witness you making good decisions while you’re tired, production all game, watch how you handle adversity, etc.

When you get older and look into buying a house, the realtor will suggest “location-location-location” …you can always make the house bigger, paint it a different color, and change it up….with athletes, scouts will tell you they want strength and size; let’s be real clear on this: they want to see speed-speed-and speed…in that order…unfortunately many scouts believe “you can’t teach speed ~ some are just born with it.” That’s the biggest myth ever invented (by people who never ran fast), and it’s told all day every day, especially in the football world. And you whiteboys better believe, in the football world your skintone has become synonymous for “slow”…so get your mind right and understand YOU CAN GET FAST. Don’t believe you can’t…that’s crap.

Since 1998, more than 200 athletes have gone on to solid college football careers after going through Speed Kills…come get “game ready.” And if the new local bum speed trainer impostor suggests “he does the same training as Speed Kills” ~ train with him…then come to SK when you’re ready to get serious.


Welcome to Speed Kills!  Thank you for visiting our website. You’re probably here because you’re interested in getting faster. You came to the right place. At Speed Kills you’ll not only get faster, you’ll get better at the sport you play.When looking for a trainer to help you get faster, you need to understand that getting faster means NOTHING, unless the speed you attain will carry over to your sport and on the playing field ~ SPEED KILLS ATHLETES ARE GAME-READY. The best way to get faster/better is by pushing yourself to the limit. The best way to push yourself is by competing. Why is it a necessity to be quick and fast in your sport? If you want to be the best, you have to be able to move with the best; and hopefully past the best. Why do you want to be the best at your sport? Most of us want to be the best to reach that ultimate goal:


Nowadays, college will cost well over $100,000 ~ Speed kills is here to get you to that ultimate level of achievement; and besides making you a dominant athlete, if you’re interested, we’ll help get you that scholarship you’ve dreamed of (check out the our SPEED KILLS ELITE GROUP page).

Many companies train athletes. Speed Kills MAKES athletes.


What is…”Speed??”

Is speed a 40 time? No.

Speed is: “production” or “making plays”

Often there’s a supposed fast guy in a game who never makes things happen, never makes plays, and never PRODUCES.

Is he fast?





Our athletes produce…WE ARE FAST.

-Jimmy Nolan

“SpeedKills Speed” is real speed. We’re the guys making plays. Front, back, and side-to-side…we’re FAST in every direction ~ all game long.


Who am I? My name is Jimmy Nolan.

I’ve been running this business since 1998. My life has centered on being the best athlete I can be, both mentally and physically. I’ve poured everything I am into Speed Kills and have learned everything through EXPERIENCE. I dominated my opponents the past few decades and know what it takes to achieve success ~ regardless of height, weight, or discriminated/stereotyped skin-tone. I dominated the ranks throughout childhood, high school (Mater Dei), college (University of Utah), and Professional Arena and European Football…came out of football retirement & turned pro in boxing (after career ending Achilles rupture). Unlike most trainers, I’ve been through it ~ undrstanding what works and what doesn’t.

Being a typical “skinny lil’ whiteboy” that scouts labeled “will never make it at 5’11” 174lbs,” I found ways to achieve success amongst giants (for example: I ran a 4.3 40 yd, bench pressed 415 lbs, squatted 500 lbs, and was invited to the National All Star Bowl following my senior season at U. of Utah). I recommend you learn from someone that’s been through it, rather than SK impostors with fake resumes / online credential’d popup trainers / YouTube regurgitators / fancy speed-seminar ticket-holders / or the average weekend-course personal-trainer-licensed goof (“certified”).

While strength & size might punish, SPEED will KILL


It’s important to learn how to move FAST when you’re young

*** More than 200 SK athletes have received college scholarships ***

How fast can you change directions?

Speed Kills has been changing athlete’s lives since 1998.

This program’s designed to give athletes the knowledge of what it takes to perform at a higher level. Jimmy Nolan has put together some of the finest drills and techniques to get the absolute most out of your natural athleticism. He makes OVER-ACHIEVERS. The knowledge/skill you’ll gain from Speed Kills can be used for the rest of your athletic career, and it’ll help you mentally in everything you do. 1000’s of mediocre athletes have excelled in his/her sport after learning the Speed Kills ways of training.

No experience in any sport is needed and we encourage anyone, male/female, no matter how big or small, to join us…regardless of the sport you play, Speed Kills will supply you with the knowledge of what it takes to reach your goals. You’ll become faster, laterally quicker, explosive, coordinated, and mentally stronger (TOUGHER) ; enabling you to perform at a higher level!

Thousands of athletes have gone through this program: many professional and top division 1 collegiate athletes. – Should we advertise about all the great professionals Jimmy works with? Yes and no… why NO? – Anyone can train a professional athlete. Why? -Because they’re already great. They’ve learned what it takes to compete at the highest level and most are naturally blessed mentally and physically. What should we advertise?

“Anyone can train a gifted athlete, and I’m proud & honored to train many. But I’m most honored training thoe kids w/ two left feet, have trouble putting on a pair of cleats, difficulty following directions, uncoordinated, no confidence, too big, too little, weak, too young, slow, no experience, no mental toughness, YOU NAME IT… These are the kids that we need trainers for. Kids need to believe in themselves, on and off the field, in all facets of life. CONFIDENCE is achieved here ~ then the sky’s the limit. My training is known to improve student-athletes motor skills in the classroom…I’m just as honored in helping kids with hardships / problems (drugs, alcohol, society’s poisons, etc). I’m here for anyone who needs some direction. Allow me to help you.”

It is essential to train against athletes faster/better than you in order to push yourself to get to the next level.

90% of the teams trained by Speed Kills have gone to playoffs and further. Speed Kills gets these kids in shape BEFORE they start their sport season, which enables coaches to get right into schemes and game-plans without having to take valuable time to get their out-of-shape kids ready to compete.

People that try Speed Kills stick with Speed Kills.

Anyone can teach you to get faster straight ahead…but what about being able to control your mind in a nerve-racking pressure gamelike situation for an entire game? What about the ability to move side-to-side just as fast as straight-ahead?…What about the ability to improve the least gifted player’s confidence? -this is where Speed Kills come in.

Are there other companies out there that train athletes to run? YES. Are there other companies out there that do what Speed Kills does? NO…never. Although there are plenty who try…SPEED KILLS pioneered the speed-trainer craze…often imitated, never duplicated – 22 YEARS.

Our athletes come to Speed Kills through “word of mouth.” Most come from other random pop-up camps and personal trainers throughout Southern Cali. Remember, you don’t need to be a certain height/weight to become successful at your sport; YOU JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW TO GET THERE.

Thank you for your time.
We look forward to meeting you and getting you READY!

There are countless success stories regarding athletes that came to Speed Kills as 2nd / 3rd stringers, and then became 1st string and All Conference.

For example, one of our athletes came to Speed Kills as a slow, overweight, offensive lineman. After a year with us, he ended up starting at tailback and safety for his high school football team, earned a scholarship, played tailback in college and received a free college degree.

Since 1998, SK has helped more well over 200 athletes receive athletic scholarships to different colleges.

What to expect at Speed Kills…

Speed Kills is a program to get you faster straight-ahead AND laterally quicker side-to-side. Everyone thinks it’s only essential to run fast straight-ahead. It’s important, but much more important is the ability to move laterally. At Speed Kills, we’re going to teach you how to achieve the whole package. A big part of the straight-ahead/lateral package is mental. We need to believe we can run fast before we do. By believing we are fast and envisioning ourselves running fast, we will run faster. Let us teach you the secret recipe for speed: hard work. Like anything in life ~ SPEED IS EARNED THROUGH HARD WORK.

Confidence is achieved at Speed Kills by learning how to work hard and getting yourself in the right mental state every time you work out. It’s amazing witnessing  how much better my athletes move, once he/she learns to use their mental side. At each session of Speed Kills, you’ll work on straight-ahead speed, lateral speed, explosion, coordination, body control, mind control, and foot speed. You’ll do all this while you’re exhausted/tired.

We’ll put you into game-like situations when you must focus while you’re tired. You’ll COMPETE with other quality athletes; that’s how you get better: competing. Other programs will not have you compete. In almost every sport, you’re usually trying to beat or catch someone…it’s essential that you compete while you train and prepare for COMPETITION. I’ll prepare you to put yourself into the “zone”, where you can use your mind, confidence, and skill to dominate your opponent. At Speed Kills, you do not just train to get ready…you prepare to be the best. Win or lose ~ YOU will win. 

Get yourself ready…have no regrets…see you at SPEED KILLS!


Regardless of what position/sport you play, Speed Kills gets EVERYONE fast.



In choosing a personal trainer;

Find out what the trainer has done in his/her athletic career.

Were they fast?

Did they play a sport…how long?

Were they successful?

Can they prove it?

Find out if they care/know their athletes or if they’re just taking your money.

When a athlete comes to Speed Kills, he/she stays at Speed Kills. All of my athletes come back (unless they’re lazy). These are the same athletes that tried 3-4 other programs and paid enormous amounts of money.

Research how the trainer will get you faster…will he have you running on a treadmill? I don’t remember the last time I saw a treadmill on a football field, basketball court, baseball diamond, etc.
