Puberty: A 14 year old male should have some significant bodily changes over the next few years . During puberty the body makes a lot of testosterone. Aside from lowering your voice and adding more body/facial hair, it will also likely increase your muscle mass and strength. If you exercise during this growth phase the muscular changes could be more pronounced. Regardless, being active is a good idea.

Gym: Gyms are present in most urban settings and have all the needed exercise tools indoors. You can set up your own home gym if that is financially feasible. Regular exercise is a valuable means to good health.
