PORT ANGELES – Olympic Medical Heart Center exercise specialist Kyle Miller recently earned certification from the American College of Sports Medicine as a registered clinical exercise physiologist.
According to the American College of Sports Medicine, registered clinical exercise physiologists utilize scientific rationale to design, implement and supervise exercise programming for those with chronic diseases, conditions or physical limitations.
"This is a huge accomplishment for Kyle and a tremendous benefit to the Heart Center’s rehabilitation program. He has earned the highest level of clinical certification an exercise physiologist can achieve,” said Leonard Anderson, M.Ed., manager of Olympic Medical Heart Center.
Miller joined Olympic Medical Heart Center in May 2016. He completed a master’s degree in kinesiology and a bachelor’s degree in exercise science at Boise State University.
Miller is set to become the wellness program coordinator for Olympic Medical Wellness Services, where supervised exercise programs will be provided for cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, running clinics, Titleist Performance Institute golf screenings, pre-total joint replacement screenings, Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance classes and a Weekend Warrior Clinic. Olympic Medical Wellness Services will be located in the Sequim YMCA at 610 North 5th Avenue and is expected to open later this winter.
