This is an easier achievement than it sounds like. It sounds like you have to beat every Time Trial in every course (which would be a lot since there are 14 courses in the game, each with more than ten time trials), but all you have to do is beat one "Time Trial" in one course.

To do this go to Play Game > Championship II--which, for some reason is the first course you can select (the other 13 courses are unlocked as you beat modes within that course such as Score Attack). In the Championship II course there will be various Time Trials, the first of which you can play are Short time trials--e.g. Time Trial (Short 1), which you must beat to unlock Time Trial (Short 2), etc.

Time Trials:
The Time Trial (Short) time trials are usually 1-2 minute sessions where you must achieve a goal, which is displayed on screen right before the session starts. It's usually something like "Be the first to eat 10 fruit". Unlike Score Attack mode where you want to have a nice balance between eating yellow pellets and eating ghosts in order to maximize your score, in Time Trial modes you are only concerned with eating yellow pellets as quickly as possible. That said, you will need to eat some ghosts too to get them out of the way sometimes, but your primary focus should be to eat as many pellets as quickly as you can. There is no penalty for using bombs so if you're in a bind, feel free to launch as many as you have. After you eat a certain amount of yellow pellets, a piece of fruit will pop up somewhere on the board for you to eat. Eat the fruit and more pellets will appear. Eat the new pellets and more fruit will appear. Lather, rinse, and repeat. Once you eat enough fruit to achieve the goal, the clock will stop (i.e. the time trial is a race against the clock). If you don't eat enough fruit before time runs out on the clock, you fail and will have to try again.

To get the achievement, defeat Time Trial (Short 1) to unlock Time Trial (Short 2), and so on. Once you complete the 7th Short time trial, you will unlock a session simply called "Time Trial." Unlike the Short time trials, which are about 1-2 minutes, this "Time Trial" mode puts 10 minutes on the clock. However, it only took me 3 minutes of the 10 minutes to beat it. As soon as I did, this achievement popped.
