Objective: The purpose of the present paper was to provide a comprehensive review of the empirical literature on the association between asthma and aerobic exercise among adults. Methods: A literature search was conducted utilizing electronic search engines (i.e., PsycINFO and PubMed) using the following keyword algorithms: asthma AND (exercise OR physical activity). Results: These searches resulted in approximately 5,665 citations. Only results that were directly relevant were included in the present review. Conclusions: Overall, empirical evidence suggests that (1) individuals with asthma are less likely to engage in physical activity than those without asthma; (2) individuals with asthma are not biased in their subjective reporting of symptoms during aerobic exercise; (3) physical inactivity among individuals with asthma is associated with negative health consequences and increased asthma-related difficulties; and (4) regular aerobic exercise improves asthma symptom management, lung function, and mental health.
