Sports and Allergies
The most beautiful time of year is also the most terrible time for anyone with allergies. Spring and summer, albeit beautiful, are also the seasons when many people suffer from hay fever or other allergies.
Indoor Trampoline Exercises
As someone with allergies, you most likely want to avoid outdoor fitness plans. But it’s important to keep exercising. Movement is excellent for anyone suffering from allergies as it strengthens the heart and respiratory system, plus it boosts your immune system. Although an IKON trampoline can be used outdoors, it’s perfect for indoor use. According to a study by the US National Institute of Health, regular exercise can significantly reduce asthma. This is even true for stress asthma.
The Five Golden Rules for People with Allergies Who Exercise
Trampoline workouts are fun even with hay fever and allergies:
- Don’t try to break any records, and take is slow in the spring and summer. Easy, regular workouts are still highly effective.
- Stay inside or go outside. Your trampoline is light and flexible, so take advantage of it! If you are allergic to dust mites, put your trampoline in the yard. If you have a low tolerance for pollen, exercise indoors.
- City vs. Country—Depending on where you live, the daytime plays a role in pollen exposure. If you are in the country, the pollen load is lower in the evening. If you live in the city, mornings will be the most difficult.
- Breathe through your nose; it’s designed to filter out the first allergens.
- Nose drops or over-the-counter antiallergic drugs can work wonders and relieve your discomfort—take it before exercising. If you use stronger medications, like an asthma spray, coordinate your training and medicine schedule with your doctor. As a precaution, always keep the spray handy in case of an emergency.
