13-years-old to be exact!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Extreme gymnastics doesn't do you much good, but "working out" in general won't hurt you!.

Be healthy!! :)

Ask one of the coaches at your school to give you tips for lifting!. Are you planning to use free weights or something like a Bowflex!? At our MiddleSchool ALL the kids workout in the Life-Room using weights, so if you were here you could get info from the PE teacher who would ENCOURAGE you to use weights on a good plan!.
So, NO, lifting will NOT stunt your growth!.
Even if you have a machine or something at home, still talk to someone about how to go about achieving your goals!.
Good luck, Sweetie!!!Www@Answer-Health@Com
