Wow ok just googled it and that looks insane, you probably shouldnt go all out on your body untill you know its fully developed thats what I have been told anyway, not good to join a gym and do free weights untill full grown either.

Purely what ive been told by people who work in that field

Yeah *sigh* that is what really sucks...and it is soo hard to accept that when it makes me happy..at the moment for exercise I go for runs, body weight exercises and I use only 1,2 and 3kg weights...mainly 1 and 2kg...when my health is right...cause I need to pick up weight..I'm going to see a trainer and get some advice on what I can do that won't mess with my growth etc..

You can do crossfit style of training. Just stick to mostly bodyweight exercises. Plenty to go arround.

Wait a year or 2/3 before you start to go all out with weights.  You dont have the strenght for this now. Which will result in bad moving paterns. And bad moving paterns are the cause of 95% of the gym injuries.

Honestly, just google the wod shop and you can find crossfit wods for free. That's what I use. Most likely you're not going to have the required equipment for it, so use the bodyweight wods to build up instead. Hope this helps.

My son's been crossfitting for several years now. He's 16. His endurance on the treadmill is stellar, and his power to weight ratio is impressive. He diets very strictly because he can gain weight by sniffing the exhaust from a McDonald's deep fry.
If your family expresses concern they probably love you. But...
Maybe they could be a little bit more understanding.
Good luck!
