Remedy Sports is a group of athletes based in Brussels, training to connect and be present at key events in the city like the Belfius Brussels marathon, the 20 kilometers of Brussels and other sport events.
Meaning of the word ‘remedy’: To correct, repair, mend.
To put right something that has been distorted or unevenly built over time.
At Remedy there’s a place for everyone who is passionate about sports – from running to football to cycling to fitness. We want to create a space for anyone who is open to be challenged and looks to build community. If you were left on the sideline with an injury, or if you pursued a career, but got tired of the competition and everything it demanded from you – Remedy Sports looks to redeem people in their talent and create ways for people to be encouraged, challenged to step up the game and pushed beyond limits!
The human body is created in such a tremendous way, it’s made to push boundaries and to be strengthened. We’ve been created with muscles for a reason – God wants us to grow strong – in Him. In today’s society we’ll find a general message through most sport advertisements – sadly enough, the focus is usually narrow and only on appearance and on the individual.
But we believe that through sports one can learn about identity, calling, purpose, discipline and much more, if we allow God to be the centre!
Our bodies are a temple for God. We’re meant to take care of our bodies and treat them with respect. We’re also called to celebrate and enjoy life with one another. Where do these two realities meet? Come and train with Remedy at the Jubel park (Parc du Cinquantenaire) to find out more!
‘’Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.’’
1 Corinthians 9: 24 -27
