I was wondering if anyone had experienced problems in joining a gym because of their asthma or other health issues?
I'm on long term steroids <insert rant about useless doctors and not trying more suitable treatment> and have put on quite a bit of weight. My exercise tolerance has also reduced. I decided I really wanted to do something about this, so tried to join the gym. I was totally honest about my asthma and to say they freaked out would be an understatement, and they wouldn't let me join.
I feel really stuck and caught in a bit of a vicious circle. I go swimming but wanted to do something else regular, that I could cope with and build up, with the aim of helping my weight gain and asthma so I could possible reduce my steroids. But they won't take me on and I don't have the option where I live of another gym - it's the only one for miles.
Anyone else experienced this or found a way round it?
