I, too, have Asthma. I would wheeze just walking hard enough...

Here is something to look into. "Body By Science". It's weight lifting. You can get away with 1-2 sessions per week.
And, you do ONE set to exhaustion (60 to 90 seconds). It's okay to split the routine so 1/2 on one day and one half the other day of the week.

Some people call it slow-slow. Drew Baye on YouTube shows a lot of the technique. Dr. Ben Bo has videos on it.
It is "keto" for exercise. The minimal effective dose.

FWIW, I've taken people from "gym haters" to "gym rats"... With 1 simple philosophy. Go to the gym regularly (even if once a week), and ALSO STRIVE to feel BETTER when you LEAVE than when you got there. If you can do that (and that is done BY NOT over working yourself), then you are on the path. After a while, a missed day at the gym will have you "feeling it"... Just like binging on carbs will have you "feeling it"... LOL
