How should one ease into exercising? 
If you have never exercised before make sure to start with a personal trainer, this can add a lot of value to your training, customise a plan for you and help prevent injuries. 
Always, start slow to understand the form and your body and ease into a routine. One should try and workout for 25-30 minutes in a day and should repeat the same for at least 3-4 times a week to kickstart your fitness journey. 

Tell us some weight-loss exercises that can be done at home
There’s a lot that can be done at home, and there isn’t a specific exercise that would cause weight loss. It’s a combination of eating well, training smart and resting. 
However, exercises that can be done at home that will burn a lot of calories are jump rope, high knees, burpees, mountain climbers or even just intensive pilates, HIIT or Tabata circuits.

Which exercise burns the most calories?
Generally speaking, exercises that get your heart rate up would burn a lot of calories during the workout, however, strength-based exercises are also essential to ensure burning a lot of calories even post the workout. 

How to tone the stomach and get rid of a belly?
It is essential to eat well, by this I don’t mean eat less but eat enough of the right food. It is also important to exercise regularly, consistency is the key. A mix of cardiovascular exercises, as well as exercises to tone the core area, are great to get those toned abdominal muscles.
