Athletic Trainer

Joe Chiaramonte
Director of Sports Medicine

Specializing in Sports Medicine and Strength & Conditioning

With CPR since 2008

Hometown: Jenison, MI

The most rewarding part of my job is working day to day with student athletes and seeing their accomplishments on and off the playing field. Encouraging young men and women to develop into productive members of the community both athletically and academically.

The best part about CPR is the true sense of family that the Center provides its employees. The opportunities and encouragement that CPR gives employees to further their expertise with continuing education. Lastly, the attention to techniques in manual therapies that set CPR apart from other therapeutic entities in town.

A good day at work includes when a patient or student-athlete “graduates” therapy and returns to sport, job or activities of daily living fully healed.

A good weekend includes spending well deserved time with my wife, Elizabeth, son, Rocco and Golden Retriever, Hugo.

When I'm not at work, you can find me exercising by running or lifting, playing golf and watching the Spartans, Red Wings, Tigers and Lions.
