Who is Rebekah and What is Mind-Body Performance Coaching?
I was a Figure Skater who struggled with perfectionism, competition nerves and confidence. This held me back from achieving my greatest goals as an athlete. I was inspired to use my training and experience to create the Mind-Body Performance Coaching Program, a one of a kind program focused on strengthening the Figure Skater’s mindset. It is everything I needed when I was a young skater with big dreams and I know it will work for you!
7 Questions to Ask Yourself before Competition
As competition season is ramping up do you feel COMPETITION READY? Being competition ready is about feeling prepared, trusting your training, and having a PLAN OF ACTION. Here are 7 question to ask yourself the week leading up to competition. 7 Questions 1. What does your on-ice warm-up look like? 2. What does your off-ice warm-up look like? 3. What time are you skating? 4. Where are you in the flight? Do you prefer that spot or not? 5. Have you skated at that rink before? 6. How early do you like to arrive? 7. How would you rate your confidence level on a scale from 1-10? How would you rate your nerves on a scale from 1-10? Answering these questions requires you to think about the factors that contribute to your performance success. Some of these factors are controllable and others are not. It is important to recognize that you always have control over one thing….your mindset! You can choose to allow external, uncontrollable factors to affect your performance or not. Preparing ahead and creating a PLAN OF ACTION decreases nervousness and increases confidence. Until Next Time, Keep Your Brain in the Game

DO IT!…Despite Your Fear
Most skaters believe that they will feel more confident once they land a certain jump or if they are skating clean programs leading up to a competition…but in reality this is probably not true. Truth is, the most incredibly successful athletes in the world still struggle with confidence and to DO IT WHEN IT COUNTS!! In actuality it is not about how confident you are, but rather whether you continue to move forward in the face of FEAR and DISCOMFORT…or not. Like a turtle, do you retract back into your shell at the first sign of discomfort or do you continue to move through the fear? Do you get hung up on something not feeling just right leading to overanalyzing or do you use your keywords and training focus to keep you in the zone? Act Despite Fear If you continually act despite your fear or discomfort you will teach yourself how to be brave and establish this behaviour as a habit. There is no magic to bravery, it takes continuous commitment and practice to establish any behaviour as a habit. However, once a habit is formed it becomes automatic and flows. Being BRAVE is what really differentiates the “GREATS” from everyone else! You can be a GREAT! Until Next Time, Keep your Brain in the Game!
