In brief: Yes

About 60% of asthma is "allergic asthma.
" this is asthma that can be aggravated by environmental allergies (e.g. Dust mite or cat dander or ragweed). About 40% of asthma is "non-allergic." common triggers of non-allergic asthma include exercise, cold air, respiratory infections, or emotion.

In brief: Yes...

Both allergies and exercise are common asthma triggers.
Try to avoid allergic triggers and a bronchodilator inhaler can be used before exercise to avoid exercise-induced symptoms.
