Dear Charlie,
I hope you don't smoke!
Breathing exercises won't help you to have more breath when you do cardio - that could be either because you are not fit or because you may get a light form of exercise induced asthma - does your chest wheeze when you exercise? If so ask your dr to prescribe a Beta stimulant inhaler to use just before going to the gym.
