Corinne Safille began her fitness journey in Miami, FL, after graduating from the University of Miami with a Bachelor’s Degree in Film Production and Theater Performance. She was one of the first instructors to introduce pole fitness and striptease in South Florida when little was known about this fitness style.
When she moved to California, she got certified as an AFAA Fitness Instructor and other certifications such as Zumba, Ripped, Pound, Pole, Striptease, Yoga, and PiYo. Corinne also created a unique business model for a mother-child fitness studio for lower-income communities that she co-owned. In this studio, she also designed a variety of inclusive and distinctive classes not available in other studios. These classes included Metamorphosis, Boot Camp Vixen, Salsa Aerobics, Rock Hard Body, Aerial Striptease, and Trampoline Vixen.
During some of those years, she was also a co-owner of a traveling burlesque show which she choreographed along with a business partner. Together they created over 20 dance performances of various music genres. She also managed and worked for her own company PoleXotic which taught women all around Southern California pole and striptease moves and choreography. She could also choreograph dances for several independent movie projects through that company.
During her younger days, her career fields ranged from a published author in several educational books while working at the University of Miami to Special Events Makeup Artist for Clinique, Casting Director Assistant, and Actress.
Corinne is a vegan mother and an advocate for animal rights. She loves educating on the benefits of eating plant-based meals and the importance of healthy eating and exercise.
