Being active and eating healthy make for a good lifestyle.
Overdoing the exercise can actually delay puberty. You should discuss this with your doctor.

The actual factors initiating puberty are complex, but good nutrition & physical activity are not known to speed the process.
In some cases, physical training for sports like gymnastics & the lean body required may delay puberty in some. Weight excess may accelerate puberty and lead to decreased final height.

At this point we do not know what makes you go through puberty early except for obesity so a healthy lifestyle may prevent the risk of going into puberty early.
