The games of Proteus represent change. The possibility of achieving what we are. The return to where we belong.

We have designed an activity mainly based on motor games for people who want to return to an active, healthy and happy life. We want that people, who have been remained inactive for a long time, can perform physical activity in a safely, effectively and amusing way. The correct planning and progression of the games are the key, because in the change resides in the growth.

Homer tells in the Odyssey how Proteus helped the Greek heroes to return home. Proteus was the deity who possessed the gift of metamorphosis; he was the only one who can tell them the way back to his homeland. But in order to he reveals that secret, the heroes had to grab him and not let him go whatever happened, until, finally, he give up.

[…] he became a hairy lion, then a dragon, a panther, a great wild boar; He also became into impalpable water and a leafy tree, but we retained him with great courage […]

Only in that way, Proteus revealed the way back to the land that gave birth to them. Hence the protean, can be understood as the life that resurges and expands through the expression of new forms.

Before the oarsmen of Odysseus
would leave their mark upon the wine-dark sea,
I can divine the indefinable forms
of that old god whose name was Proteus.

Shepherd of the wave-flocks of the waters
and wielder of the gift of prophecy,
he liked to make a secret of his knowledge
and weave a pattern of ambiguous signs.

At the demand of people, he took on
the substance of a lion or a bonfire
or a tree, spreading shade on the river bank

or water which would disappear in water.
Proteus the Egyptian should not surprise you,
you, who are one, but also many others.

Jorge Luis Borges

As you set out for Ithaka
pray the voyage is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.
Laistrygonians and Cyclops,
angry Poseidon—don’t be afraid of them:
you’ll never find things like that on your way […]
[…]unless your soul sets them up in front of you.[…]

[…] Keep Ithaka always in your mind.
Arriving there is what you are destined for.
But do not hurry the journey at all.
Better if it lasts for years,
so you are old by the time you reach the island,
wealthy with all you have gained on the way,[…]

Konstantinos Kavafis

And we, like the Greek heroes, want you to be able to return where you belong through Proteus, wiser and more enriched by the journey. Like Ulysses on his return to Ithaca.
