What body fat percentage should a girl have at age 15?

I just got measured for body fat in gym class and I got 15.7%. I’m very athletic and due 2 work outs a day, totaling up to about 2 hours. I run cross country and a competitve swimmer. What body fat percentage is right for someone of my statistics and activity level? I’m5’6”-5’7” and weigh about 123-124 lbs. How would my fat percentage be classified?

    Body fat depends on the individual, not their age. Your percentage is probably somewhere around “athletic,” although that can vary depending on the scale your gym teacher used.

    For women,

    Essential fat 10–12%
    Athletes 14–20%
    Fitness 21–24%
    Acceptable 25–31%
    Obese 32%+

    So I think your body fat is well within range and you are doing fine.

    I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..

    Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!
