Effects of Aerobic Exercise on Asthmatic Responses in Obese Adults

We are looking for overweight individuals who have asthma and want to start working out regularly. Researchers believe that exercise may have a beneficial effect on inflammation and asthma symptoms in overweight people with mild to moderate persistent asthma. The purpose of this study is to see if a 12-week exercise program will affect inflammation, lung function, asthma symptoms, and asthma quality of life in overweight adults with asthma.
