dear young friend, you are still 13. So do not start joing gym at this early age as there is the possibility of overdoing exercises. instead, do lots of natural exercises activities like swimming, jogging,playing foodball/rugby. Eat lots of fruits and drink at least 500 ml of milk. You can joing gym when you reach 15 years.

Gyming will not have adverse effects unless a proper diet is not followed. Check your BMI which will guide you.

If you are a player, you should have a good diet for optimum performance.Consult dietician at your place.
