Asthma Can Be Triggred By Exercise

Kevin’s asthma started as a child and he has experienced symptoms throughout his entire life. Now, in his adult life, he is a competitive cyclist wishing to reduce the number of times he needs to stop and use his asthma inhaler.

He did some research and started using the POWERbreathe Plus Light Resistance in the hope that it would help him to reduce the frequency of inhaler use.

“I’ve noticed a huge improvement in 6 weeks with about 90% compliance to the program. I probably increase the setting about once a week.”


To test and see if his breathing is actually getting stronger, he occasionally adjusts the settings to a higher or lower breathing load to see if he can feel a difference in exertion. As a result, Kevin feels it is noticeably easier to perform the 30 breaths. He also does not have to obtain his prescription for his inhaler as often. As a result, Kevin explains how he is saving money by not having to have as many inhaler prescription refills, yet is improving his quality of life. In fact, he is improving his breathing strength so much that he will be graduating to the POWERbreathe Medium Resistance soon.
