Blood pressure. If your pressure is controlled at rest and exercise, then the gym is fine.
Depends on severity. Generally, regular aerobic exercise (along with a healthy diet) will be an important part of any high BP treatment regimen. However, you should discuss with your doctor the type of exercise you want to do. For example, if BP is very poorly controlled (i.e., very high), you should avoid high intensity static exercises like power lifting. Walking, biking or swimming would be great for you though.
Too many. Anti hypertensives to list...don't forget low sodium diet, exercise & weight loss in controlling BP.

Several ways. Weight loss, low salt intake, regular physical activity, avoiding or moderating alcohol intake, and a dash diet all help treat high blood pressure, as can treating underlying conditions. If the blood pressure is not that high, it is worth trying these things first, but if it's really high, medicine is required.
Take meds. While, low-salt & low caffeine help some, it is not all. Also, not all can reduce life stress. If you are overwt, could lose down to goal. If your family has high bp, you may fail with all these efforts. Time ticks while trying them--get BP controlled w/meds--you can always have them stopped when wt down / diet changed / life calmer (/...Pigs fly...). Don't let HTN hurt you while you try things.
Lifestyle changes. A combination diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and low-fat dairy products and low in snacks, sweets, meats, and saturated and total fat are the best foods to lower high blood pressure. Also, getting in at least 30 mins of cardiac exercise daily is extremely helpful. Limit your alcohol intake to no more than 2 drinks per day. Keep a healthy body weight/BMI. Best wishes.
Yes. Lifestyle modification including increased exercise, weight loss and sodium restriction can all be helpful on controlling blood pressure. There also a specific diet called dash dietary approach stop hypertension which has been well studied.
Low salt diet. Exercise & weight loss...Medication if lifestyle changes are ineffective. Talk to your physician.

Rule out secondary HTN @ your age.
