“I felt like such an awful mom... ...I didn’t know what to do.”  

“I watched her struggle with a skill I knew she could do... ...but I wasn’t sure how to help her.”  

“I’d tried everything I could think of to help... ...and she still froze up on the beam.” 

These are the kind of quotes I hear every day from parents like you who care about their kids and their sport. It breaks my heart. As a parent myself I know there’s nothing harder than watching your child suffer over and over again.

If you’ve ever felt your stomach sink to the floor as they miss a skill...  

...clenched your fists as you pray they’ll do it this time...  

...or hardly been able to breathe when they freeze up again...

...then you’ll know exactly what I mean. 

It’s like you can feel what they’re going through but don’t know how to help them.  

You know they can do it. You’ve seen them do it before. So why aren’t they doing it this time?

It’s sometimes like they refuse to do it because they’re afraid to fail. And it’s so frustrating to watch as a parent too. Especially when it feels like you’ve tried everything...  

You might have left it to their coach who simply yells at your kid to try harder and “just go for it.” You might have yelled at them yourself. Maybe you’ve tried the loving “oh it’s okay” approach. Or maybe you’ve tried sitting there hoping they’ll figure it out on their own.

Some days it can feel like you’re completely out of ideas... like there’s literally nothing you can do to help your gymnast. You might even feel like you want to give up on them completely.

That’s totally normal and it’s definitely not your fault. It’s fine to feel that way. 

The question is… what can you do about it?

Well I’m sure we can agree on a few things… You want the best for your daughter. You want her to succeed. Want her to have confidence. Want her to be able to do her skills. But it can be hard to understand what she’s going through and even harder to know what to do about it.  

A big problem is that up until now you haven’t had the right tools for the situation. And it’s almost impossible to help her when you don’t have the tools you need. That’s where I come in…

I'm Rebecca Smith, a high performance coach and mother of two.

I’ve helped hundreds of gymnasts and parents like you with the struggles you face on a daily basis.

I’ve been there. I’ve been the kid and I’ve been the coach. That’s why I’m uniquely positioned to help.

As a kid I was afraid to do a back handspring... even though I knew I could do it technically. I saw how much stress my parents were under as they struggled to help me. And I eventually had to quit competing because it all got too much to handle.

As a coach I saw countless kids lose competitions just because of fear and mental blocks. I watched kids struggle with the same problems I’d had. And I watched parents like you get frustrated and upset when their kids couldn’t perform at their best.

It reached a point where I couldn’t stand to watch any longer. To help these gymnasts (and their parents) I knew I needed to find the right tools…  

This is when I decided to study the psychology of sport and performance. You’ve probably heard the saying “sport is 90% mental and 10% physical...” It’s one of the biggest clichés out there so I never paid much attention to it. It’s amazing how true it is though.  

See most people fall into a trap... thinking that if their kid can do a back handspring once they should be able to do it over and over again.

I fell into the same trap myself but what most people don’t realize is that it's their mind that holds them back more than anything else

Their coaches are great at perfecting the physical side of gymnastics. But when they only focus on physical skills your child misses out on critical mental skills. And if your child isn’t training their mind they won’t perform to their potential.

It’s why Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez and most every Elite, Pro and College team has a mental coach. Mental training works... and it took me years of hard work and over $100,000 to learn everything I know about it.

Then as I worked one-on-one with hundreds of athletes on their mental training I discovered the exact reasons behind fear and mental blocks.

I figured out why gymnasts freeze up, can’t perform existing skills or struggle to learn new skills. And I developed easy to use tools to get past the fear and remove mental blocks. Tools that have helped hundreds of gymnasts to enjoy their sport again and become more confident than ever.

At this point you might be thinking that this all sounds great... but you don’t have the time or money to work one-to-one with me or my team. That’s fine because I’ve come up with a solution for you too.

I know not everyone can find time in their schedule for a call every week… or find nearly $1,000 for 6 one-to-one sessions... so I created an online training center to store all these mental tools. I made it affordable for more people and you can use it on your schedule, wherever you are in the world...

Introducing PerformHappy The complete online mental toughness training center for gymnasts and sports parents

Know exactly what to do to help your gymnast: ✔️ Remove mental blocks ✔️ Be more confident ✔️ Enjoy her sport again 

In PerformHappy your child will learn…

  • The mental secrets of Olympic gymnasts like Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez
  • How to use the secrets of successful athletes to their advantage when face to face with mental blocks
  • The trick of "changing hats" that can help them to refocus when it gets tough
  • How to work with their “two wolves” to help overcome fear and be more confident
  • How to identify unlikely things that can be the cause of fear and mental blocks
  • How a few simple words can help them to master difficult skills and perform better than ever
  • The four key requirements to build unshakable confidence in their sport
  • How to think, feel and act like a champion so they can rock their skills and routines every time
  • And much more!  

PerformHappy is packed full of ways to help your gymnast master the mental side of their sport. Here’s an overview of what’s included:

PerformHappy Library You get access to my ever-expanding library of mental toughness training courses...

Peak Performance Parenting Have you ever wondered why your kid doesn’t perform like they practice? Do you worry you’ll say the wrong thing to her on competition day? Or do you think you might be making her fear worse? Then Peak Performance Parenting is the course for you.

In this course I’ll reveal to you exactly how to help your athlete, even if they don’t want to be helped. A lot of parents think “my kid doesn’t want to be helped right now.” And although that can be true, the deeper reason tends to be that they don’t feel understood or supported in the right way. 

Part of being an amazing, supportive parent is knowing how to communicate best with your gymnast and that’s what this course helps with. It’s where I recommend every parent starts so you can better understand your gymnast and what they need from you.

Overcoming FEAR If your gymnast wants more confidence, a stronger mind and to remove mental blocks this course is for them.

Overcoming FEAR is my six-part online course that has helped hundreds of gymnasts find freedom from mental blocks.  

In this self-study online course they'll get access to pre-recorded video trainings, downloadable worksheets, audio recordings, guided meditations, visualizations and various exercises to complete. The 5-20 minute trainings are easy to follow and can be done at a time to suit you.

Finding Flow Discover how the pros make their routines look so effortless… and how your gymnast can too.  

Finding Flow is packed with everything I learned about how to get into a flow state easily and consistently. In this course your gymnast will learn how to tap into their magical flow state to both feel and perform at their best when it counts.

Pre-Performance Mental Strategy Learn the secret of how your gymnast can get in the zone and perform at their best consistently

Automatic Self-Trust How your gymnast can remove doubt and stop overthinking to perform better when it counts 

Anxiety To Confidence How your gymnast can stop being so nervous and start to build rock-solid confidence

PerformHappy Community Your online support community of fellow athletes, parents and coaches...

Private Facebook Group for Sport Parents It can be a tough journey being a parent, especially when you have an athlete to worry about. You’re not alone though. Once inside this private group you can connect and interact with other parents who are having similar experiences.

It’s a safe place to ask questions of other parents and myself. So many PerformHappy parents have found this group invaluable and for some it was the main reason they joined.

PerformHappy Forums This is a place for gymnasts to share their goals, fears, and successes with other members. And you can both share ideas, get feedback, and connect with other athletes, parents, and coaches.  

Unlimited Q&A in the “Ask Rebecca” Forum In the "Ask Rebecca" forum you and your child will have direct access to me whenever you need it. Post your questions and I’ll be there to provide guidance, encouragement and feedback as you go through the trainings.

PerformHappy Live Weekly live trainings and Q&A where I tackle your toughest questions…

Weekly live trainings and Q&A All members get access to weekly training sessions that take athletes through the same process as 1-on-1 clients in a group setting. In these live sessions I’ll tackle your toughest questions and provide guidance on how to move your child ahead.  

The live sessions are every Wednesday at 6pm Pacific and they’re usually led by me. From time to time I may bring in other trusted coaches from my team to lead trainings. 

Each session consists of 30 minutes where I’ll teach techniques and mental skills and answer questions from the athletes. Questions can be submitted in advance and all sessions are recorded so you can access them at any time and learn at your convenience.

What other parents and gymnasts are saying...

"I felt a relief when listening to Rebecca. She actually understands the problem and doesn't see blocking as attention seeking or being lazy.

I've waited many years for someone to tell me that blocking is a 'thing' and for it be recognized. I’ve been made to feel like they (coaches) have never seen it before.

Thank you and keep up the good work!"

- Mother of a gymnast -

*****

"I left the gym feeling like my happy child was finally back. About an hour later, I received a text from her coach with a video of her doing 2 giants with a layout flyaway dismount on the regular high bar.

I cried! The process works… thank you!!!"

- Mother of a gymnast - PerformHappy member

*****

"Before I joined PerformHappy I was having problems with my self confidence. Now I feel a lot more confident in myself by using the training methods taught by Rebecca. She has helped me get through my mental block!

I have gained so much confidence by using imagery. I use it in practice, at home, and even in the car on the way to gymnastics."

- Gymnast - PerformHappy Member

"I’m so glad that I found Rebecca and I really think that she helped my daughter with more than just gymnastics."

- Parent of a 14-year-old gymnast -

*****

"I would absolutely recommend Rebecca to others, without reservation... she's terrific!

Thank you Rebecca! I've got my hopeful girl back!"

- Mother of a 14-year-old gymnast -

PerformHappy is NOT for you and your child if…

  • You want to carry on trying the “old school” methods to overcome mental blocks (that haven’t worked so far)
  • You’re happy spending countless hours trying to figure out how to overcome mental blocks yourself
  • You’d rather have a child who’s fearful of gymnastics instead of filled with passion for the sport she loves  

PerformHappy IS for you and your child if…

  • You see her struggle but don’t know how best to help her 
  • You’ve tried lots of ways to help her but nothing seems to work 
  • You see her perform well in practice but fall apart in competition (or vice versa
  • She dreams of doing big skills but feels like she’ll never get over her mental blocks 
  • She has big goals for herself that both you and her feel slipping away because of fear 
  • Every time she loses a skill she feels like she’ll never get it back 
  • She’s considered quitting gymnastics because of a fear or mental block 
  • She’s sick of feeling left behind 
  • She feels like her coaches are giving up on her (you might not even know she feels this way

Frequently Asked Questions

"Is PerformHappy only for young female gymnasts and their moms?" Not at all - the reason why I’ve written the page in this way is because the majority of my clients fall into this category. All the trainings and different fundamental principles I teach can be easily applied to athletes in any sport and of any age or gender.

I offer a 30-day happiness guarantee too, so if you’re on the fence, simply try it risk-free for a few weeks. If it’s not helping for any reason, you can simply request a refund and no hard feelings.  

"Am I signing up to a contract with a PerformHappy membership?" No, you’re not. We like to keep things simple so there’s no contract with PerformHappy. When you sign up for a monthly membership, you pay a month in advance and can cancel at any time. As long as you let us know before your next payment is due to come out, we can cancel your membership and you’ll have the remainder of your month to access the site.  

"Is PerformHappy for parents, athletes or coaches?" All three - we have valuable material for parents, athletes AND coaches. The majority of the training is for athletes who want to overcome fear and mental blocks, build their confidence, and find their flow, and we have a training course and Facebook group specifically for sports parents too. For coaches, you can use a lot of the theory from the trainings with your athletes.  

Again, if you’re not quite sure and want to see if it’s right for you, simply try it for a few weeks risk-free.  

"Is PerformHappy right for me and my child?" Only you’ll know that. If you’ve read all the information on this page and you’re still not sure, that’s okay. Remember that you can try PerformHappy for a few weeks risk-free. If you decide it’s not for you, simply request a refund within your first 30 days and you’re covered by my happiness guarantee.  

"Does the training have to be parent-led?" Not at all. It’s completely up to the athlete/parent/coach as to how you go through the training. Athletes can go through it on their own or younger athletes can complete the trainings with adult supervision. It’s a case of finding what works best for you!  

"What if my child doesn’t have a mental block?" That’s absolutely fine, there’s still a ton of value inside PerformHappy that can help your child perform even better mentally. What’s great is that you can prepare them in advance too, so if mental blocks do pop up in the future, they’ll already know exactly how to deal with them and won’t be derailed.  

"What is PerformHappy?" PerformHappy is a complete online mental toughness training center for athletes, parents and coaches, comprising of weekly live trainings, an online support community and a collection of online courses. To discover exactly what’s included in a PerformHappy membership in more detail, please refer to the details above.  

"Where do the trainings take place?" Everything is online. You get immediate access to every single training in my extensive library. That way, you get the most flexible training opportunity available.  

"How is PerformHappy different from other online courses?" This is an action-oriented, purpose driven program. I deeply care about my students. Because of that, you get personal guidance from me as you navigate the trainings. We’re constantly updating and improving every aspect of our program too. Over the years, we’ve cultivated a growth-minded experience that helps athletes, parents and coaches get results.  

"What kind of support do you offer for members?" Personal, caring support is the foundation of the PerformHappy Community. Once you join the program, you’ll have guidance and support from me and a team of like-minded athletes, parents and coaches, in a safe, encouraging environment.  

"I’m not too good with technical things, how easy is it to access the training?" The whole PerformHappy program is on a mobile-friendly platform. This means if you can turn on your smartphone or computer and click a link, you’ll be fine. If you run into any problems, our PerformHappy support team is here to help. We take customer care to heart, and if you have any tech issues you need help with, simply email us and we’ll take care of you as quickly as we can.  

"How much time do I need to commit?" If you plan to get through a training each week, we recommend between 45 minutes to 1 hour per week to watch the training, complete your action steps, and engage with Rebecca and the community. You can easily work at your own pace, on your own schedule. The experience is designed to stretch you, but it can also be customized to your life and training schedule. Many of our members go through the program as best they can, pausing and returning to it as their schedule allows.  

The more focus and dedication you put into PerformHappy, the more you’ll get out of it. To be clear, there are no fast or guaranteed results. Reaching goals that matter is not an 8 week, linear event. This program mirrors the reality of the competitive sport journey — it’s intense, time consuming, demanding and something you’ll work on for the life of your sport.  

"We're already so busy with training, won’t this course take up even more time?" Do you spend at least 30 minutes a week in transit? Then you can easily carve out time to plow through the trainings. Your kids can listen to to the audios while riding in the car or any time you’re sitting around waiting, and if they can find 30 minutes a week to work on their mental training, they’ll be making all that physical training worthwhile again.  

Also remember, you can try PerformHappy for a few weeks and it's just not fitting into your schedule, you can request a refund.  

"Who is right for the PerformHappy Community?" PerformHappy is geared toward athletes with big dreams, and their support squad of parents and coaches. It’s for athletes age 8+ who want tools to take the stress out of performing. The PerformHappy experience is designed to help you and your child navigate their sport journey confidently and efficiently. It’s for driven, action-oriented people who truly want a competitive edge in sport and life.  

"Who is not right for PerformHappy?" This program is not for you if you hope to learn by osmosis. PerformHappy is for action-takers who understand that real change happens with consistent, focused effort over time. PerformHappy is not right for someone looking for a quick fix. This is not an overnight solution, it’s a “get great” with time program.  

"You talk a lot about daughters, is PerformHappy only for girls?" Not at all. It's for both girls and boys. It just happens that a lot of my clients are young, female gymnasts. PerformHappy isn't gender specific, and the material inside will work for anyone experiencing similar problems.  

If you're still unsure, try it for a few weeks. If it's not working for your child, you can get a refund.  

"Is PerformHappy only for gymnasts?" Not at all... I talk a lot about gymnastics as that’s my background, but this stuff isn’t sport specific. I’ve helped countless athletes get over their fears and tap into their potential... figure skaters, divers, trampolinists, tumblers, pole vaulters, shooters, baseball players, basketball players, soccer players, hockey players, lacrosse players, football players, golfers, tennis players, swimmers and more.  

"Is PerformHappy just for kids?" No. Although the materials are kept simple deliberately to appeal to athletes as young as 8 years old, we actually have members of all ages.  

"Do you offer a guarantee – can I get a refund if I’m not satisfied?" Yes! We back our program with a 30-day 100% satisfaction money-back guarantee. Here’s how it works: If at any time in the first 30 days of your membership, you’re not completely satisfied, check in with us to resolve your issues, and if you still want to cancel, we’ll happily give you your money back.  

"I'm a hands-on person. Can doing all this online stuff really work?" Although it’s online, every training has action steps that are very hands-on. In order to rewire your brain for success and get the results you want, you need to apply these proven techniques in your life, right away.  

"What if my kid isn’t open to the training?" There’s a course inside the PerformHappy Library exactly for this. If you’re not sure how to best work with your child, sign up and take the Peak Performance Parenting course. It’ll teach you exactly how to help an athlete that doesn't want to be helped.  

Within your first 30 days, if your child still isn’t open to going through the trainings and you’re not getting any value from PerformHappy, you can speak to us for a full refund.  

"Will my daughter think I’m nagging her?" If you’re worried, then complete the Peak Performance Parenting course first. It will teach you how to guide your child through the different trainings, and for many parents this will mean getting out of the way.  

"Couldn’t I just figure this stuff out for myself?" Of course you could. I did and it took me years of research, testing and working with thousands of athletes. But if you want to save yourself a lot of time, money and uncertainty, I recommend giving PerformHappy a try for 30 days to see how well it works for you and your child.  

"We live in Australia/Asia/Europe etc., will it still work for us?" Yes, it doesn’t matter what time zone you’re in or where you’re from, the material will work when you apply it. All the courses are accessible online 24/7, from anywhere and at the time you choose. The live sessions are weekly, every Wednesday at 6pm Pacific, and are recorded so you can access them when it's most convenient for you.  

"Can’t we wait until competition season starts?" If you wait until it’s too late, the pressure can cause a lot of trouble, especially when we’re dealing with fear. It’s always best to get your child mentally tough before it becomes a huge problem. Give them a head start and get them ready to perform at their best.  

"I was a high-level athlete, shouldn’t I be able to help my own daughter with this?" We have kids of Olympians and NCAA D1 athletes who are members of PerformHappy. No joke. Often, parents who’ve had major sport success actually have a harder time helping their kids through fear. Sometimes what you think you know keeps you farther from the solution, and often, being an athlete yourself makes you biased and you can miss certain clues that will help solve your child’s problem.  

"Isn’t sport psychology for people with mental problems?" Did you know that Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, and practically every NCAA, Elite, Pro, College and Olympic team have sport psychologists? Sport psychology isn’t for the weak minded, it’s for athletes who want to crush the competition and get on the podium.  

"What if other parents think my kid is weak for needing this?" Let them think what they want. You’ll forget about it when your kid is the one taking home the medals.  

"I’m paying a fortune for my kid’s tuition and private lessons, why do we need this too?" PerformHappy can save you a whole lot of private lessons. As soon as your kid has a method for working through fear, they can finally spend time working on upgrades and goal skills, and they’ll get through “problem” skills way faster.  

Remember, if you try PerformHappy for a few weeks and you're not happy with the value it brings you and your child, you can email me for a refund. 

"We’ve tried so many other things, what if PerformHappy doesn’t help us?" I’m confident it will, and if for some reason it doesn’t, there's a full 30-day money back guarantee. If for any reason the program isn't a fit for you and your child, speak to us within the first month and get a refund.
