I'm not a Rav, so I'm not going answer those questions halachically, but I'll tell you what I've seen. A lot of the time girls don't realize what they look like. I've heard guys make comments about what a girl looks like when she's dancing/jumping rope/etc. Trust me, most of the time they're not flattering. Even so, it DEFINITELY draws attention to things that tznius does not what you to draw attention to. It's like wearing tight clothes--you're not actually revealing anything, but you're making it much more obvious and eyecatching when it moves.

look up bally's fitness for women or fitness for woman clubs. If all else fails and you can't get anything at home, try talking with people in the community to set something up. If THAT fails, then ask your rabbi if he thinks that you are ok going to a gym (and maybe his rebbetzin knows what to do) or try running in a certain area (sometimes schools will let people use the building or the track)
