For years I enjoyed walking as daily exercise but air quality issues/ weather etc kept me from being consistent. I joined a gym and now go walk on their treadmill indoors 6 days per week. I have noticed a significant difference in my endurance levels and ability to walk stairs. I know part of that is being in better shape but I can tell the difference in my asthma as well!

    1. Thank you for the article. I was recently diagnosed with exercise induced asthma/bronchiospasms so this helped me. I don't know much about asthma so I'm glad I'm here to learn.
