Dave Kyle, head trainer of Les Mills, offers some extra tips for toning that tum.

Speaking to HuffPost UK Lifestyle, he reveals that a flat, toned stomach can be achieved through incorporating anaerobic exercise into weekly fitness routines.

"A great way to do this is to try workouts which incorporate High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)," he adds.

But the most important thing is to eat right.

"Diet is just as important as exercising when it comes to achieving a flat tummy," Kyle reveals. "To be able to show off your abs you will first need to get rid of the belly fat that hides them.

"You should start changing your diet by eating mostly unprocessed foods that have high nutrition vale instead of refined carbs and unhealthy fats.

"Your meals should be as unprocessed and healthy as possible, and should always include some of the powerhouse foods that pack in the nutrients, including fruits and vegetables, almonds, beans, greens, eggs, lean meats, whole grains and berries."
