Introducing Dr. Shockley


Dr. Kelly Shockley is a Colorado native, single mom of an extremely busy and exciting 3 year old, chiropractor/small business owner and just your average trail runner.

The biz…

  • Kelly and her family started Advanced Body Dynamics, now known as ABD Life, 10 years ago and added PureShock Nutrition in the past 3 years.
  • She received her Doctorate of Chiropractic at Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, OR in 2005.
  • Kelly is an associate instructor and an Advanced Proficiency rated doctor for Activator Methods of Chiropractic Techniques.

  • She is a current member of the National Concussion Registry, is certified with the state of Colorado to perform pre-participation examinations and also specializes in functional medicine.  Kelly is continually learning more to better help her patients unleash their potential.

The person…

Personally, Kelly has done a lot of growing through life with the past year and a half being some of the most challenging, heart-wrenching, humbling and rewarding.  She doesn’t feel like her story is any more special than anyone else’s.  She knows she’s not the only one who has gone through the things in life she has thus far and knows there are other’s who are continually experiencing worse.

Leaving her past life behind has allowed her to move forward and get back to who she have always been, but a better, stronger, more determined, and she’d like to believe unstoppable, version of herself.  She is forever grateful for her family and her son.

Kelly GTIS 2015The runner…

Kelly is back to running again.  Looking back, running has always been a part of her life.  In high school, she use to get up early enough to run 5 miles before heading to school. During Kelly‘s chiropractic schooling years, she got into trail running while living in Oregon.  It was love at first run! And why wouldn’t it be?  Two of her favorite things combined – the great outdoors and running!  In 2006, she completed her first full marathon (Chicago).  She has not done any real consistent running until this past year.  Her goal for 2015 was to do a few half marathons again.

Training began….running laps in the basement.  Yep, laps.  They’re kind of like slow suicides.  Those who have known this about Kelly have said she’s crazy, like a hamster trapped in a cage running back and forth.  It’s true, it is kind of nuts.  Eighty-five laps equals one mile.

Kelly has done 14 miles down there!  She has always believed where there’s a will, there’s a way.   Kelly is happy to say she’s successfully completed 4 of her 6 half’s thus far.  Kelly‘s new goals for 2016, run the North Fork 50 mile ultra in June and the TransRockies Run in August.  Her motivation, to show her kiddo, and all of her patients, family and friends that anything is possible regardless of your circumstances.
