Reducing body fat on belly tends to be misunderstood and misguided frequently and creates some confusion.

The first thing to remember – there are no exercises that specifically burn body fat on one area.

The muscles that you train will be just more toned, underneath the body fat.

Diet and nutrition are key when looking for reduce belly fat so as well as exercising well in Dubai and Abu Dhabi you need professional advice about what you are eating and what changes you need to make to your diet.

In this case, a professional trainer with experience in weight loss and nutrition can really help.


We asked a professional fitness trainer in Dubai for their advice and tips on the best exercises and training types that will help you reduce belly fat.


Q: Eating a healthy diet goes a long way to helping reducing fat in the belly.

This is often a difficult area to reduce fat for many people. As well as eating properly what are your top 10 exercises (combined with diet) to help reduce belly fat?
As a personal fitness specialist I would suggest the only way to lose belly fat is to lose fat across the whole body – and that will reduce the belly.

You will find that the belly fat is often the last to go (especially in males), and I often describe it to my clients as the spare tyre that wraps around the waist.

Another sad truth is the belly fat is the worst location for fat in regards to health complications, so it’s absolutely essential to lose if you want to have a long and healthy life.

So what can you do about losing belly fat? Exercise and nutrition in Dubai and Abu Dhabi are of course key elements and work together to help you slim down the waistline.


Here are my top ten exercise tips to help you.


The Stationery Cycle


The stationary cycle (or assault bike) done in sets of 20 second sprints (Also known as Tabata style named after the scientist who first discovered it’s incredible efficiency and effects on health).

Just a few of these can have as many health benefits as much longer duration’s of steady cardio, but you have to give it 100% effort on the sprints.

When you first start doing these keep the rest as long as needed, then over time when you get fitter reduce the rest as you increase the sets.




Rowing, this full body exercise burns tonnes of calories and is great for your posterior chain.




Stepper, again this machine is great for either steady or interval training because you burn so many calories per minute.


Sled Pushes


Sled pushes, this is a fantastic way to combine strength and cardio using intervals and is a favorite in my sessions, and a least favorite for my clients in Dubai!


Sled Drags


Sled drags, many of the same benefits but good for the posture too.




Kickboxing in Abu Dhabi and Dubai is an amazing way to burn tonnes of calories, and you don’t feel like you’re actually exercising.




Boxing has similar benefits to kickboxing but requires slightly less instruction.


Cross Trainer.


The cross trainer causes much less impact on the body since you’re always supported and can be used for both steady state and interval training.


Weight Training


Grouping weight training exercises into supersets and trisets. This allows you to burn more calories through the workout as you have time to get more done.


Circuit Training & Bootcamp


Circuit training is one of the most classic ways people aim to lose their body fat.

In Summary.....

I am a believer of doing the right things consistently well, therefore, I always focus on full-body approach for fat-loss, rather than wasting time on small muscle groups. And in the long-term it will keep you healthy, strong and looking good in the mirror. Also, don’t overlook the impact a well prepared diet and nutrition plan in Abu Dhabi or Dubai can have on helping you slim down in the waist area. Foundation always comes first and details can be polished later.
