CONGRATULATIONS to our Advanced Medical Exercise Specialist (AMES) Residency 2022 graduates. This is our second class of graduates. The AMES residency is a year-long intensive deep dive into managing medical conditions using exercise. This AMES class started in March 2022 and concluded in January 2023. Each resident completed the 26 AMES Client Management Sessions, the 4-day AMES hands-on workshop as well as the presentation of a detailed MET client case study to their peers.
I would like to congratulate and thank each of our AMES residents for their commitment to the residency and their dedication to our new profession – “Medical Exercise Training”. Our MES-As truly “Bridge the Gap Between Health Care and Fitness” with their advanced skills and knowledge. Special thanks to Angela Thrasher, MES, MEPD, NMD, MSPT, Lt Col, USAF (Retired), Jason Hodge, BS, MES, owner of Medical Fitness Pros, and Darwin Ruiz, BS, MES-A.
