Pollen season is making me M-I-S-E-R-A-B-L-E, so I’ve moved my workouts indoors. I’m thinking of making a home gym in my basement, anything I should keep in mind to make sure my asthma doesn’t flare up again?

Seasonal allergies are a drag, eh? You’re not alone – our Lung Health Line has gotten a TON of calls about pollen this year.
You’ve already taken a positive step by recognizing your asthma triggers. Now let’s make sure you don’t inadvertently expose yourself to more of them when your workouts go underground.
On the bright side, FiFF, by moving your workouts to an asthma-safe indoor environment, you’ll also be protecting your lungs from air pollution on days when the AQHI (Air Quality Health Index) number for your region is high. Nice.
Say – when you’re done setting up your sweet workout oasis, wanna come set one up for your friendly neighbourhood breathing know-it-all?
Live long and prosper,
