Meridian Adventure Boot Camp “Health Coach”

Heath Van Patten


Heath Van Patten, MS, PES, CPT  – Owner and Coach

When you workout with me and Meridian Adventure Boot Camp, remember, we are a team. We will overcome any obstacle that gets in our way. Yes, I know and believe, that it will be difficult and you will want to quit. But, you won’t quit, you will persevere and you will obtain the desired results you have written down. I will be here to help you along the way, no matter what. You will get results! I can guarantee it.

I have a Bachelors in Business from Northern Arizona University and a Masters in Exercise Science from California University of Pennsylvania (online). I am certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Certified Personal Trainer and Performance Enhancement Specialist. I have been in the health and fitness industry since 2000. My experiences are many in the industry: sales counselor, personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach, general manager, head trainer, facility manager, and founder/owner.

I have 15 years in the fitness industry with 8 years working specifically with athletes and sports programs. For 7 years, I was working with the mens and womens soccer programs in Phoenix at Paradise Valley CC. As a S&C coach/Assistant Coach/GK coach, I was involved with 2009 3rd place finish at nationals, National Champions in 2010, and 2012 National Champions. With this broad experience, I can work with all client levels. I have high expectations and will challenge you both physically and mentally. However, that will only make you better and more fit. I am very passionate about living a healthy lifestyle, choosing natural and clean foods and being as fit as possible. It is my goal to get your desired health and fitness goals so you can “pay it forward” and get more Americans healthier and fit.
