Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is performance coaching?

A: An athlete’s coach trains the body to perform the tasks necessary for success in sport.  We train the mind to allow the body to perform well when it counts.

Q: What is PerformHappy?

A: It’s like Peloton for your mind. We have a mobile app with live and on-demand group trainings. Your PerformHappy membership includes “The Challenges,” which are bite-sized training videos you go through each day that will re-wire your brain for increased awareness, confidence, and self-trust. Parents get two easily digestible courses that help you become the solution, not the problem.

PerformHappy Standard and Elite members have a parent community, an athlete community, and a coach community so you get direct access to coaching and Q&A with Rebecca and the coaching team as you go along. We also offer 1-1 coaching via zoom for PerformHappy Elite members.

Q: Who is PerformHappy for?

A: Athletes, coaches, and parents. The whole support squad. Most of our members are female individual sport athletes (gymnasts, cheerleaders, dancers, swimmers, and figure skaters) who are between age 10-15 and their parents. We have athletes age 7+ including college students and adult athletes. For athletes under the age of 10, we recommend a parent help them navigate the challenges so you can assist with retention and application.

Q: What results can we expect and how long will it take?

A: Like anything in life… you get out of it what you put in. When families go through our training program full out, we often see that in 3 months, athletes are able to gain mental skills that it took me decades to learn through the school of “I’ll figure it out on my own.” After 3 months, many athletes are able to break through their mental blocks and regained physical skills that they had been stuck on for months or even years. Parents who trust our process start to see major positive shifts in their relationships with their athletes and regain the joy of sport parenting when they get their happy kid back.

Q: What if my athlete is resistant to mental training?

A: 80% of athletes in our coaching program started hesitantly.  For this reason, many parents sign up before their athlete is ready for support. Then when you, the parent, go through our parent trainings, you’ll start to make changes to your approach. You’ll notice your relationship with your athlete improving. We’ll guide you through EXACTLY how and when to introduce our methods to your athlete. That way they’ll be a willing participant and they’ll get maximum results.

Q: What if my athlete is not a good communicator?

A: Many of our athletes come to us completely terrified to speak up in groups, with teachers, with coaches, etc. One athlete who was just like this, came to us a Level 8 gymnast who couldn’t tumble anymore. In 3 months, she found her voice, got her skills back, and became a leader in the PerformHappy group. We see this all the time because of our warm, welcoming community where kids don’t feel alone in their mental blocks anymore.

Q: What if my athlete’s coach wont participate in the methods you recommend?

A: We have lots of athlete in the group who have challenging coaches. This is a common issue for kids who develop mental blocks. We work together to get creative and support athletes to focus on what they can control. We also train parents to spot the difference between abusive coaching and “tough love.” We have an entire parent training session on how to have tough conversations with tough coaches, complete with a script. Our families have had many many productive conversations with their coaches who once seemed unapproachable. We have also seen many tough or inflexible coaches learn and adapt by watching athletes employ our methods successfully.

Q: What is your refund policy?

A: We are incredibly confident that if you do the work we suggest, you will get the results you’re looking for. If, however, in the first 30 days, you show up to at least one live training and complete one course or challenge, and you decide it’s not for you… we’ll give you a full refund (minus a coaching fee for any 1-1 sessions used).

Q: Can an athlete join the community without a parent’s involvement?

A: For athletes under 18, we recommend having a family member on board for accountability, but you can absolutely join us and get major benefit out of the trainings without an active family member.  You will get access to Rebecca’s personal guidance, the mobile app, and the complete PerformHappy mental block breakthrough method.

Q: What if we can’t make the live training times?

A: We have multiple live group trainings each week in the evenings and on weekends. We’ve found that families from all over the globe can often make at least one of the trainings work. In case your schedule doesn’t allow you to show up live for a topic you’re interested in, we record every session and send out links to replays each week in our member newsletter. We also have hundreds of past trainings you can search for in our training library if you need a little extra guidance or inspiration on a tricky topic.

Q: How often should athletes have 1 on 1 sessions?

A:  Elite members have sessions every other week on zoom or FaceTime. We’ve found that this cadence is ideal for individual sport athletes who are working through the challenges in between sessions. Standard members do not have 1-1 sessions included in their monthly membership, but you can always purchase a single session or a package of sessions as needed to support your progress.

Q: How do I know if I need 1-1 coaching or not?

A: Athletes are getting great results without 1-1 support. One of our gymnasts went from pervasive mental blocks on all 4 events to competing in college without a single 1-1 session. However, athletes who have their own personal coach build confidence faster and have more accountability. This allows parents to completely sit back and be parents. If you have an athlete who is not as self-guided, 1-1 coaching can be a great option.

Q: Can we just sign up for 1-1 sessions? My athlete won’t participate in group trainings.

A: Because of the results we see in the families who work our ENTIRE program, we don’t work 1-1 with anyone who is not willing to do the work in between sessions. We have crafted a super-streamlined, highly effective training program that reduces the amount of sessions necessary and provides predictable results. If you’re not willing to get out of your comfort zone and try something new, then you’re missing the growth mindset that will help you to be successful in breaking through your mental blocks.

Q: I’m already paying a fortune for my child’s sport. Do we really need this too?

A: If you’re paying a mortgage payment every month for your child to participate in their sport, and they end up with low self-confidence and mental health issues, was it worth it? We’ve found that the lessons learned in PerformHappy go way beyond sport. Our athletes have endured natural disasters, grief, transitions to college and out of sport, with grace and ease because of the relationship they forge with themselves along the way. You can truly consider this an investment in your athlete’s wellbeing in sport and beyond.

Q: Is there a contract?

A: There is no contract whatsoever at the Standard level. You can go month-to-month or quarter-to-quarter and cancel any time.  For Elite members we require a 3 month commitment. It takes time to build rapport and trust with a client. The first month can be uncomfortable – often, athletes are learning some unpalatable truths about their current mental strategies. This commitment allows us to help you to the other side and help you get the results you want.

Q: What is your refund policy?

A: We are incredibly confident that if you do the work we suggest, you will get the results you’re looking for. If, however, in the first 30 days, you show up to at least one live training and complete one course or challenge, and you decide it’s not for you… we’ll give you a full refund (minus a coaching fee for any 1-1 sessions used).
