Asthma Triggers at the Gym

Learn more about the hidden triggers at the gym that you can avoid. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) estimates that up to 80% of people with allergic asthma will experience symptoms when they engage in strenuous exercise.

How to Avoid Triggers at the Gym

  • Avoid saunas and pools if they are using irritating chemicals

  • Use your own latex-free exercise mats

  • Take an antihistamine before entering the gym to prevent a reaction from chemicals used inside

  • Try to choose high-quality natural fabric when buying workout gear

  • Use your inhaler as directed before you exercise

  • Warm up and cool down properly so you don't overtax your respiratory system

  • Skip your workout when feeling sick
