I've been working in the fitness industry since I graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 2015 with a degree in Kinesiology. I'm incredibly passionate about helping clients realize that their path to a complete lifestyle change is so much closer than they think! During my one on one training sessions and group classes, I draw on my experiences training a variety of fitness backgrounds. Whether coaching olympic lifts to Division I Hockey Players or working on gait mechanics in a home-based program with a client that has Multiple Sclerosis, my fulfillment comes from observing the numerous small victories that lead to the ultimate result: a happier, healthier YOU!

Throughout my youth, I was very active. I was a three sport athlete in high school and even played college volleyball for a stint. Once I stopped playing in college, I stopped being active all together. After years of a seditary lifestyle, terrible eating habits, and 2 beautiful children, I found myself morbidly obese, on the verge of terrifying health ailments, and feeling terrible both physically and mentally. In January 2015, I made a major lifestyle change that altered my entire family's health and lifestyle. My husband started eating healthier and started doing CrossFit. My children found out what it was like to have parents who were active with them and could keep up with them. Throughout my health journey, I not only lost nearly 100 pounds but I gained a passion and ignited a fire in my soul that can not be put out. I knew that my purpose in life was to help people and use my experience to show people that a healthy, balanced life is possible. I wanted to help people with achieving THEIR goals. I pride myself on listening to clients and helping them set goals and attain those said goals--whether it is weightloss, muscle gain, athletic performance, or just taking control of their lives. I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach, and a CrossFit Level 1 trainer. I love every aspect of fitness and want to continue to explore all facets of fitness and nutrition. I believe that everyone can be an active participant in life rather than a spectator on the sidelines. I am beyond blessed to do what I love on a daily basis!

My name is David Pauna and I am a Strength/CrossFit coach at Integration Fitness. My wife, Bridget, and I have 2 beautiful daughters named Zoey and Maddie. I have a genuine love and passion for fitness and nutrition. I have always been fascinated with pushing my “perceived” personal limits and seeing what I am capable of. My athletic foundation started with my dad bringing me to Midtown Fitness in St. Cloud and teaching me the importance of staying active. Since I was in my mid-teens, I had been doing a traditional bodybuilding “split” routine (back/biceps, chest/triceps, etc.). Then, in my 20s, a friend of mine got me into running. Over the next few years, I completed 3 full marathons and countless half-marathons all while continuing to lift weights at a globogym. In 2013, I watched the CrossFit games on TV and then attended the Granite Games as a spectator in St. Cloud. This local competition is what really got me excited so I started attending class at CrossFit Pinecone in Sartell. I have been doing CrossFit now for over 5 years and throughout this time, I have realized that I have a talent to teach others and be a resource to help guide people towards their goals. I recently obtained my CF-L1 certificate through Crossfit.com and I am proud to share my lifelong journey of fitness through coaching my fellow athletes at Integration. I love being a teacher but I never forget that the best teacher is also a student!
When Isaac Rakke is not coaching Crossfit at Integration, he is likely spending his time herding a flock of Lithuanian Mountain Goats on his 40-Acre Hobby Farm just north of Embarrass, MN. Isaac is passionate about helping others and will be frequently found volunteering at area nursing homes; so often, in fact, that the residents gleefully look forward to "backrub with Isaac" Day. The key to Isaac's heart is a day spent galavanting through a field of wildflowers with his trusty sidekick Meatball, a 450 pound Vietnamese Potbelly Pig.

Hi! My name is Micale, I grew up in a big and active family, loving sports and being outdoors. In my late teens I developed some very disordered eating tendencies and poor body image, struggling in my adulthood with being significantly underweight for years, then significantly overweight for years. I found CrossFit in 2014 and was greatly motivated and empowered by it. My weight finally stabilized, and I found I loved being strong most of all. For me the trade off of time spent investing in functional fitness has been well worth the goodness of life I've gained in terms of confidence, energy, sense of well being, and general ease of living. I want EVERYONE to experience the physical and emotional benefits of activity that I have, and I got my Level 1 CrossFit Trainer in October of 2018, with the intent of better sharing my enthusiasm with others. Our bodies were made to move, and I love helping others love it like I do.

I started running as an escape mentally and quickly dropped a ton of weight fast. I experienced the “runners high” that everyone talked about and my running obsession grew into becoming a marathon addict for 5 years. After accomplishing marathon goals I never knew were possible, I wanted to help others achieve the feeling I felt when I crossed the finish line; the tears of joy, the physical pain that reminded me of how hard I worked, and the craving of wanting more. I then started becoming a pacer with two running companies, meaning I was one of the runners holding a sign with a “goal time” keeping the same pace, finish in the assigned time, while coaching those running with me. Fast forward, I wanted to turn that love into more, which I found a love for CrossFit in the process. In addition to my pacing and personal training, I recently achieved my CrossFit Level 1 certification and I couldn’t be happier! I found my home at Integration Fitness, the BEST place in the world. Not only do I get coached myself by incredible coaches, I also feel honored to be a part of this amazing team, who make me feel like this is my second family. Nothing makes me happier than watching people achieve goals. I fully understand how emotional and physical health is important and no matter what the fitness goal is, I will confidently help you achieve them!

Hello! My name is Sam and I am a CrossFit athlete, CrossFit L-1 trainer, MMA fighter, and full time paramedic. After college, I had gained some weight, was fighting a long term battle with disordered eating and was looking for a hobby to occupy my time. Despite having never done sports or athletics, I began MMA training in 2016 and have had 3 MMA fights in the last 2 years. I started CrossFit in 2016 at the recommendation of my MMA coach as a strength and conditioning program. Immediately I fell in love with the strength and power I gained, the confidence I felt in myself, my body image and my sport, my ability to be a better first responder, and the community of CrossFit. One of my favorite things about being a Crossfit coach is witnessing athletes achieve things they never thought possible, and being a small part of empowering them to get there.
