If you want a flat toned, tummy you’re going to love my ab challenge.

There’s one word that seems to buzzing around every time I work with a new client.

That word is ABS!

From a sexy 6 pack to a firmer, flatter tummy… Abs consistently seem to be the “forbidden fruit” everybody is lusting after.

As a trainer, I’m all about it!

A strong core can help reduce back pain, improve your posture, and increase self-esteem exponentially.

That’s why I put together this challenge!  So you can experience all the benefits and get flat, toned abs.




If you want to see some sexy definition in your abs…

If you want to lose some inches from your waistline…

If you’d like to get in the habit of training your core…

Then my 30-Day Ab Challenge is perfect for you!

See me demo the exercises in the video below.




Every day for 30 days, you’ll need to perform the following exercises.  It’s very important that you use proper form while following this challenge.

Proper form ensures you’re targeting the muscles and avoid neck/back pain.


Perform each exercise as instructed in the Ab Challenge video.

In the beginning of the challenge, you’ll do lower reps/sets… and progressively add more as the days go by.


  • During the first 10 days, repeat each exercise the prescribed number of times, and complete 3 sets.
  • During the next 10 days, you’ll add a 4th set.
  • By the last 10 days of this challenge, you’ll be repeating each exercise, for 5 sets.
  • By the end of the 30 days in the challenge, you can lose inches from your waistline and notice more defined sexy abs.


Below you’ll find the reps/sets and a list of the 6 exercises to follow during the 30-day challenge.
