Hi and welcome to the team. Have you checked out the exercise videos on the site? There are even ones you can do from a chair.

Greg, thanks for the info! I'll check it out. I did do tai' chi for awhile but the instructor was an airhead and the frustration of dealing with him was too much. LOL I've been looking for another class in my area with a different instructor. I enjoyed the class, just not him. LOL I will check out what you've sent. Thanks and keep in touch.

I'm going to reach my goal!

howdy and welcome :) I too have a hard time with doing stuff, I don't have asthma, I am just very overweight so it makes it tough to breath sometimes. here is a link to a bunch of pages with MAY help or it may not. I hope you find what you need :)

Have you tried anything like tai chi or yoga or swimming? granted tai chi is a hell of work out even though it doesn't look like one but can be very beneficial with breathing
here is an article to suggest it MIGHT help

I can't do alot of the same exercises and things that alot of people can...I have asthma. I want so badly to lose weight. I'm in the early stages of things, I'm changing my eating habits, doing crunches on our ab lounger and lifting weights safely. Any other exercises that I could do without getting "winded"? Please help!!


I'm going to reach my goal!
