The sport of climbing demands a tremendous combination of strength, technique, mental fortitude, and determination. However, even at the top of the sport's ranks, it's common to struggle with many of the challenges the every day athlete faces — burnout, injury, obsession, and questioning one's purpose with sport. Tyler Landman is a professional climber that has recently shifted his relationship to the sport to find more balance and flow through purpose over performance and redefining what meaningful movement looks like.
Tyler was born in London to American parents, and grew up between London and Boulder, Colorado. He was quickly swept into the sport of climbing from a young age, clicking instantly with the sport and into competition. However, with Tyler’s sights set on medical school, there was a shift in his focus and purpose within the sport of climbing, leading to a different relationship. We talk about all of this, and explore flow as it relates to climbing and how we as athletes can connect to our sports more positively. Thanks from both of us for listening!
