Our Story

Christian Fiume was born in New Jersey and grew up in Lebanon Township. From an early age, he was always involved in sports: from karate and skiing to soccer, baseball and basketball. While attending Voorhees High School, Christian played soccer, basketball and varsity golf.

He attended Allentown College (formerly De Sales University) graduating with a BS Degree in Sports Management. While in college, Christian participated in intramural football and he was a member of the college Golf Team.

Christian has an additional degree, an Occupational Associates Degree in Golf Management from San Diego Golf Academy. He worked as an Assistant Golf Professional in Bergen County, NJ until he relocated to the Orlando, Florida area where he took a position as the Assistant Golf Professional at Remington Golf Club. He moved to the Kissimmee Bay Country Club and soon became their Head golf Professional.

While living in Florida, Christian’s love of athletics took him in a new direction. He developed a passion for fitness and weight training and when he moved back to New Jersey in 2006, he decided to pursue a career in fitness training. He perfected his skills at gyms in Phillipsburg, Morris Plains and Cedar Knolls, and he developed a loyal client base along the way. In 2008, Christian moved into the Blairstown area and in 2010, he opened FITNESS EMPIRE in the Fountain Mall. In 2014 he brought FITNESS EMPIRE to its beautiful new home, where fitness and wellness services combine to provide members with a unique experience.
