I'm 16 and 5'1, I weigh 145 pounds.. I do kickboxing 3 times a week and go running every other day 2 miles. I really want to get down to the 120s or 130s. I'm also pretty strong and really dedicated.. Do you think crossfit would be a good way to get toned and lose some weight soon? Please help?

As someone who works in the fitness industry ( soon to be a professional trainer ) and who bodybuilds ( 5 days a week ) and does a variety of martial arts ( 3 days a week ) I can honestly say you don't look overweight or fat. And you sound like you're doing everything right, if you really want to tone though I would suggest strength training, heavy weight 6 reps 3 sets. I do that and in addition to being pretty strong I am very toned, this about were I am toned wise, minus the six pack abs I don't have those yet -_-. Except unlike that picture I have better definition on individual muscles.
Strength training is really the best way to get stronger and more toned, but honestly I think you're fine just the way you are but if you want to improve yourself then go for it, there is always room for improvement no matter how strong, fast, big or fit you get.
Also FYI what you have is muscle weight which looks different then fat weight if you compare someone who is 145lbs of muscle weight to someone who is 145lbs fat weight trust me you'd see a difference.1
