4 of 10-minute exercises to lose belly quickly, according to a trainer

If one of your goals is to reduce belly fat quickly, but you’re struggling to make time for it, you’ve come to the right place.

We spoke with Jayne Gomez, personal trainer at Fyt, a leading personal training service that makes fitness under the expert guidance of a certified fitness professional in person (or virtually) comfortable and accessible to everyone.

Gomez gave us the scoop on a daily 10-minute workout you can do to quickly reduce belly fat. After all, it’s very frustrating to have stubborn fat that just won’t go away.

“In the 10-plus years I’ve been in the fitness industry, I’ve found that the fastest way to get rid of belly fat is to have a slight calorie deficit and do HIIT workouts,” says Gomez.

“If you want to take it up a notch and see results even faster, I would do the exercises in the morning on an empty stomach.” For this type of workout to be ultra-effective, Gomez says, you need to take short breaks and make sure your heart rate is up. Gomez recommends bringing a heart rate monitor so you can easily keep track.

Now it’s time to get started. Check out Gomez’s 10-minute workout to reduce belly fat fast. “You’re going to do the next four exercises in a “superset,” which means you’ll do one set of each, then pause for 30 seconds and repeat,” Gomez explains.
