Here is What our graduates are saying:

“Growing up racing, I wasn’t ever listening to my competition or friends talk about how they have been training their minds. All I knew was practice at the track, train in the gym, eat healthy, race and repeat. Looking back now, I truly believe my racing days would’ve looked alot different if I had learned about mental performance taining. I had such a negative outlook about myself, and my mind was so weak. If I woul’ve had somebody show me and work with me on the mental performance techniques, it would of changed my entire world for the better in racing as well as my relationships and life around it. I am excited to now know the tools necessary to get to that next level, and grateful to be able to pass this knowledge down to the next generation of racers.” – Bryce Stavron

“When I first found this course from Dr. Laskis, I had reached out for information and pricing. I had really debated doing this for about a year. Well, I finally decided to try this course out and finished it. It is super informative and I was very intrigued. This course truly kept my attention and I was eager to move through each lesson. I passed the final exam and received my certification. I also began working with my first client a few days later. Dr. Laskis is very open to assist in any area of your new side hustle or career. He is a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process.” – John Hendrix

“Working with Tim and his course has been a game-changer for my future coaching career. I have tried other programs and nothing compares to the ease of use and quality of information in this course. To add to this, the time invested from Tim to help you every step of the way over the phone and by email just makes this course even better. If you want to be a mental performance coach, you have to check this out!” – Steven Desmond

“This course was a great combination of valuable information and tools that I was looking for to help me confidently pursue my dream of being a motocross coach. Tim was always very helpful and always responded to any emails and answered any questions or concerns promptly.” – Jeff Johnson

“Tim Laskis’ Motocross Mental Performance Coaching Course could be the missing piece to riders reaching peak performance. This course would be great for parents of riders, riding coaches and more. This easy to follow course does a great job of laying our in layman’s terms how to add the tools needed to your arsenal to provide the mindset and confidence riders need to become a champion in both motocross and in life. I thoroughly enjoyed studying the material and learing more about how having the knowledge, combined with good diet, being physically fit and good riding technique can help a rider finally reach peak performance. Don’t let this be the missing link.” – Patrick Bruner 

” I believe this is a huge part of the puzzle on how to become successful in the sport of Motocross. Tim gives you the tools on how to become a Mental Performance Coach and explains things where it is easy to follow along. I am very excited to not only help riders on Nash Motorsports LLC, but to be able to help other riders also.” Exciting things ! -Kimo Nash

“I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. I will definitely need to continue reviewing the material to sink in better, but I was extremely pleased with the amount of information you gave and it will be a big help in working with my riders. Thank you for offering this course.”  – Steven Squire

“The mental performance coaching program was very informative. There was a lot of information to learn, yet it flowed and was easy to stay engaged. I look forward to implementing these techniques with my riders!” -Nathan Smith

“The Motocross Mental Performance Coach program is very clearly laid out and easy to follow. The more technical aspects are broken down clearly and become easier to digest, thus speeding up the comprehension. I have a fairly busy lifestyle with my career, 2 kids and my own racing. The self-directed aspect of the course made it easy to complete when time allowed and any time I had a question, Tim quickly responded with clarification. In fact, I had my first client before the completion of the course and Tim helped me through my first race-day scenario with no hesitation. This course has provided me with all of the tools necessary to start my mental coaching business with confidence. Most online courses give you the information, but not the business acumen to actually get it off the ground. I am more than ready to continue accepting clients and get to work.” – Ryan Pickford.

Here’s the story…..

My name is Tim Laskis and I grew up racing amateur motocross in the southeast United States. For years, I traveled with my dad to the races. He was my mechanic, primary sponsor, transportation specialist and my biggest fan. It was some of the best times growing up and the lessons learned on the track helped me throughout life.

Once I stopped racing I focused on college. I went on to earn my bachelor’s degree in psychology at Rutgers University in New Jersey, Masters degree in psychology at The California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) in Fresno, CA and Ph.D. in clinical psychology at CSPP.

However, in 2014 I began working as a mental performance coach with professional and amateur riders who train at ClubMx. It has been a blast and witnessing the riders progress and reach their goals is awesome.

Reconnecting with the sport of motocross after so many years was amazing. Since then, I have worked with top professional factory riders in the 250 and 450 classes. It truly is a dream come true and I love the freedom and flexibility that I have. I can work from wherever I am. Most of my work occurs over the phone and via facetime. As long as I have a cell phone signal, I can help my riders. And, the best part is that anyone can do the same.

If you ever heard of Jeremy McGrath, then you know his championship winning mechanic, Skip Norfolk! He has a ton of industry knowledge and managed the ClubMx/Traders/Redemption Race Team in 2019. Skip said on the PulpMx Show that the greatest riders in the history of motocross are MENTAL GIANTS! Skip knows motocross inside and out!

  • who can benefit from being certified as a mental performance coach?

If you are an established riding coach or trainer, adding a new skillset increases your value and separates you from other trainers without this certification.

Parents of young racers have enjoyed the certification program as it gives them a variety of tools to help their son or daughter become more competitive, especially at big amateur events.

Anyone with a background in racing who wants to help riders strictly as a mental performance coach have benefited greatly from the certification program. It gives them an opportunity to work in the industry they love as a side job or full time.  They learn marketing and business setup within this course.

  • Do i need past experience or minimum education level to take the  mental performance coach course?

The simple answer is no. There are no prerequisites to enroll in the FREE or certificate course. The most important thing is that you have a passion for motocross, are open to learning and want to help riders reach their goals.

  • what is the difference between a mental performance coach and a sports psychologist?

The confusion between these two titles is very common. However, there is a difference and it is important to understand that this is not a course to train you to become a sports psychologist. A sports psychologist is a protected title in which only those with a Masters or doctoral degree from an accredited university or college with a license in this field are allowed to use this title.  A mental performance coach is also a trained professional however, there is no license or minimum education level to work as a mental performance coach. Mental performance coaches with the right training and skills can be very effective in helping racers or athletes achieve their goals. And, the best part is that you do not have to spend thousands of dollars and years to learn your craft. Universities and colleges around the nation have seen a significant drop in enrollment. The number of students enrolling in college has now dropped for five straight years, according to the National Student Clearing House. Times have changed and public opinion is that they want training that is faster and cheaper than the traditional institutional way.


This is great question! Riders are embracing the mental side of racing at all levels, amateur and professional. They are looking for that extra edge and have found out that one of the biggest factors in their success is mental performance training. Motocross, which is very demanding physically, is also just as demanding mentally. It is extremely stressful for up and coming amateurs and professionals to manage all of the demands placed on them and focus 100% on the race. Those that have superior mental skills hands down outperform those who do not. There is a demand for mental performance coaches to assist motocross racers and you are in the right place to begin your journey.
