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. While we are being told to stay at home, 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.
