Hey, Welcome to the site
I'm 16 too, and am also in training for boxing
What you should do is check out this site www.boxinggyms.com
Check for a local gym in your area, call them up
Also, here is some equipment you would like to get:
Gloves
Handwraps
Headgear
Mouthpiece
Sneakers, or Boxing Shoes
Gym Bag (to carry your stuff in)
Water Bottle, and a healthy snack during workout

Talk to the gym about finding you a trainer
He will probably also tell you about glove sizes

What are you doing as of training right now?
Post your working plan here

I hope I can help you out with this
Good Luck and I hope everything works out for you

I would wait on buying the more expensive stuff until you see that you like it. Make sure you get in a few rounds of sparring first.

As for starting out, don't just go to the first gym or the closest if you have more than one in your area. Check them all out. Gyms all have diferent feels and training methods to them. Some are for the people who just want to get in shape and some are for those looking to have amatuer bouts and possibly have Pros training. In NYC many gyms offer a one day trial. Check them out. Work with their trainers. Ask a lot of questions. What is there fee structure? Do you have to pay separately for a trainer? How many people do they train at once?

After that, hit the pavement. Start running 3-5 miles a day. There is no better way to start training than to be in good cardio shape. Roadwork will help you train longer and is very beneficial in the begining.

I just started about a month ago and have been very happy with my start so far.

Rubber Ball? Like the one you squeeze? That's interesting, never thought about it. Sounds good.

If you don't know how to throw punches yet, I would switch out the shadow boxing for some other kind of intense cardio. Shadowboxing is not just about working the muscles. It is about building form and working on combinations and using an imaginary opponent whom you are tying to out box. But the rest sounds like a good plan.
