See doctor: If you are the only one among your team members having this problem, you need to check with your doctor to make sure that you don't have asthma. Make sure you get enough water and electrolytes also when exercising in hot weather.

You need to be: evaluated by your doctor for bronchospasm and obstructive airway disease with spirometry and possibly chest xray. Shortness of breath is a serious symptom that requires investigation.
