Too many times, in amateur athletics, an athletes career gets cut short based on the fact that they are simply just not fast enough to play “at the next level”. Whether it is a 40 yd dash, 60 yd dash or a big vertical jump, we aim to get you the times and heights you need to turn heads and get noticed.
Starting with extensive video analysis and neuro-muscular tests, Slow Guy Speed School builds a program designed for the individual athlete. We believe every athlete is different, with different needs. Unlike most “speed” facilities, we build a program for the individual.
Unlike most facilities who are staffed by young coaches who rely on their recent playing career and “cool” factor, Slow Guy Speed School is staffed by Chris Korfist, a “sprint guru” with an international following.
With over 55 all-state sprinters and countless other high school all-state athletes, and over 20 years experience, he knows what is appropriate for the athlete in the room and not so concerned about what the pros are doing or someone else journey to where they got.
In fact, the methods have been so effective, Chris has consulted NFL teams, Big 10 Universities, Olympic team and U.S. Special Forces.
"Korfist is the smartest, most curious sprint coach in the country.”
"Coach Korfist is the sprint coach of the millenium!'
"Congrats to the best sprint coach I know, Chris Korfist. Elmhurst York was only good at running slow before Chris took over the sprint program. Back in the day, York would have never dreamed of their sprint relays running 41.48 & 1:26.61 in the state finals. Those kind of sprinters are not low-hanging fruit in Elmhurst, Illinois. Give credit where credit is due. Hail to the 3A State Champions, Elmhurst York. #SpeedKills”
Chris, my daughter ended up running a 12.44 and had the fastest 100m time in the UP State Finals for all classes. Thanks for your help and willingness to share what you have learned. It has made a very positive and significant contribution to my daughters high school career and future. Can't thank you enough.
Most people think speed an athlete is either born fast or not. Slow Guy Speed School begs to differ. Our programs are designed differently to get the most out of an athlete. We get athletes strong, in the right way and at the right time.

These are DVD’s that Dan Fichter and I made some years ago. Due to high demand, we converted them into downloads. They are the base for both of our programs and still very relevant in the world of speed training. They are $20 each.
