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.
Individuals who are between 18 and 55 years of age, overweight, and have asthma may be eligible to participate.
