I’m Rebecca Smith, your podcast host, and High Performance Coach. I’m Director of Complete Performance Coaching and founder of The #PerformHappy Community.

Maybe you’re a gymnast with a fear of going backwards. A swimmer who can’t seem to go any faster. Or a parent who is clueless about how to help your child succeed. You might be stepping up to tougher competition and looking to raise your game.

Whether you're struggling with a mental block, or you just had the best season of your life, this podcast is for you.

Kids need resources to deal with the pressure of competition, but they don’t necessarily want it to be their coach or parents.

I teach parents, coaches, and adolescent/teen athletes of all abilities how to achieve their personal best. These are the tips and mental toughness strategies that my clients tell me help them most.

I also provide insights for parents and coaches who want to support their kids and their teams.

Performing well is a blend of hard work, skill and mental toughness. I’ll teach you how to use all 3 to be the best athlete you can, and have FUN competing in your sport.

Mental skills translate to all areas of your life. When kids learn skills to cope with stress & emotion in a sport context, they become better prepared to thrive in school and beyond.

Join me each week as I help people reach peak performance and maximum enjoyment.

A must for competitive athletes

Best recommendation I’ve ever gotten for my athletes. We’re only 3 in and it is such eye opening info for both myself as a supporting role and for helping my kids to understand the mind connection in their training and performance. So grateful for this!
