Robert Syrisack has been kickboxing for three years and rock climbing for two. His favorite thing about these two sports is that it challenges both him physically and mentally. Despite having asthma and being afraid of heights, Rob always gives 110% and faces every challenge head on. Since Rob has breathing issues, he spends a lot of time focusing and training on his cardiovascular endurance. To face his fear of heights, Rob specifically searches for routes that he’s afraid of and takes falls during lead climbs. His advice to others is to explore as much as possible and to do what you love no matter what anyone says. His proudest accomplishment is learning to believe and love himself no matter how a fight or a climb turns out.
