Okay I'm a little confused by my potential employment future. I have an undergraduate degree in exercise science, a masters in cardiovascular health and rehabilitation.
I'm currently looking into a PhD in either cardiovascular science/physiology/ medicine - (three separate phds)
Now from what I've found I would be known as a acidemic cardiologist (which is ideally my goal to work within research) but my question is, would this translate to industry as a standard cardiologist? And if so which path would be ideally suited for both, physiology, science or medicine ?

A 'cardiologist' is a medical doctor. To be any form of 'cardiologist' you need to go to medical school, do your foundation years, core medical years then specialise in cardiology.
Doing a PhD in cardiology would probably make you some variety of cardiac physiologist.

You definitely shouldn't be describing yourself as a cardiologist if you're not medically qualified.

I'm intrigued what an 'industry cardiologist' would look like, but no it wouldn't be you.
Doing any of those PhDs could lead to a career in research (in fact the distinctions you're drawing seem pretty arbitrary - what the PhD actually is is more important than trying to push it into some category).
