Kjell (pronounced “Shell”) Thorsen is a licensed Chiropractic Assistant, Performance Enhancement Specialist, NASM-certified personal trainer. Following graduation this year with a Bachelors in Exercise & Sports Science from Southern Oregon University, he will continue his education next fall by pursuing his doctorate in Physical Therapy.
Kjell has been involved in a variety of athletics since he was young including wrestling, football, soccer, basketball, and track & field. He graduated high school as an all-state wrestler and went on to wrestle at Oregon State University. Kjell developed his interest in sports science, while growing up immersed in athletics and around chiropractic. After spending time at Total Performance, Kjell found satisfaction in building relationships, serving patients, and giving quality of life to individuals. This has driven him to pursue a career as as physical therapist. He hopes to one day return to work at Total Performance with this title.
When he’s not learning or working, he likes to spend his free time with his wife and daughter hiking, mountain biking, paddle boarding, and 4-wheeling in the beautiful southern Oregon outdoors.
