In the early 1960s, the hotelier Bernhard Porten senior discovered the southern part of the Black Forest, especially the community of Höchenschwand, as a place with a special, health-promoting climate. Even now in the third generation, the Porten families dedicate themselves in the “village in heaven,” as it is known, to the topic of health and offer numerous services in all areas of recreation, relaxation, rehabilitation, and prevention in the southern part of the Black Forest.
From this basis, FITALMANAGEMENT was created, with Christa Porten-Wollersheim, a granddaughter of the company founder, Bernhard Porten, Sr., as company CEO. For now over 10 years, FITALMANAGEMENT has specialized in preventative health care programs for enterprise clients. Originally, the focus was placed on leadership checkup programs, with the building blocks: medical check-ups – movement – relaxation – nutrition. Today, FITALMANAGEMENT has, with a proven and experienced team of specialist doctors, sport teachers, physical therapists, trainers and coaches, expanded to execute cardiovascular training weeks and health seminars successfully as well.
