Personally i cant recommend HIIT enough. Id definitely look into something like that too. When i started trying to get fit i was overweight by about 4 stone and had zero muscle definition. I started doing a boxing class that incorporated alot of HIIT training (in fact the boxing would take up maybe only half a class, the rest was HIIT), and i credit that with what absolutely obliterated most of my flab and gave me pretty decent overall muscle definition (bi's, shoulders, back, chest). HIIT gives you insane amounts of cardio fitness too. I remember before i got fit i couldnt run for anymore than about 10 minutes without wanting to die. I can do a 5K now in about 28 minutes which feels great I also couldnt do a single pull up which was strawberry floating embarrassing. Most workouts now is tart off doing about 30 of them! So yeah id definitely recommend a HIIT class if you can find one. It annihilates fat, gives great cardio, and (for me at least) gave me a better physique than i ever had in my life.
Im also pretty pumped because i only noticed in the last few weks but im starting to get a defined "V" in my crotch area.. Not sure if its from all the extra running ive been doing in the last few weeks, or the skipping exercises ive been doing or what, but ill take it
