The immune system protects the body against disease and fights off infection. Specialised blood cells are the immune systems greatest weapon!

A strong immune system is key for consistent and beneficial training and it’s important you keep on top of your nutrition as it will help to keep your immune system strong. A poor immune system can increase the risk of injury and reduce performance.
