Belly fat: There is no such thing as spot fat loss. You would need to lose weight in general & a certain proportion of that will be abdominal fat.

To tighten your abdominal muscles consider doing crunches, reverse crunches, .

exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge & the “bicycling” exercise on your back. Insure that you are engaging in regular aerobic exercise. 45 minutes a day would be a good goal to shoot for.
