Patty Purpur grew up in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and was a competitive athlete at an early age. She earned a full athletic scholarship to Stanford University in 1985, where she was a nine-time NCA A All-American athlete and competed in the 1988 Olympic trials. She is in the North Dakota Sports Hall of Fame and the North Dakota Track and Field Hall of Fame. She was given a Key to the City by Grand Forks in 2009.
After graduating from Stanford and trying a few other ventures, Patty founded TimeOut Services. By 2008, the company was managing the corporate fitness centers for clients including Google, Cisco, Yahoo!, and Safeway – and sales exceeded $5 million. In 2009, Patty transferred her corporate fitness center management contracts and her Community BootCamp program to Plus One Holdings in a multi-million dollar deal. She retained her core company, TimeOut Services, which now focuses on corporate wellness consulting and stress management ser vices. In addition to serving as President of TimeOut Services, Patty is the Director of the Stanford Health Promotion Network.
Patty’s passion for teaching and inspiring others is evident in her dynamic workshops, coaching, and keynote speaking. As a national-class athlete, she learned the power of disciplined action and goal setting, and she has a unique ability to share her knowledge and experience in a way that inspires and empowers others.
