The only exercise that can get rid of fat is Cardio...You eliminate fat when you burn more calories than you eat. Crunches and ab exercises may help your ab muscles be stronger, but if the muscles are covered by fat, the fat has to be burned off before the muscles will start to show.

Unfortunately, we can't "spot reduce"...there is no way to work an area to get that particular area to shrink.
