Exercising for spot reduction doesn't work. There isn't a metabolic pathway between fat cells and muscle cells.

Do some more cardio, eat right, keep working out your core and stretch. I got a flat stomach doing that.
Supplements can help improve body composition as they can help maintain muscle mass, improve digestion, and encourage fat stores to be used as energy.

Long duration aerobic exercise is not your best strategy for fat loss as it makes you energy efficient (more MPG so to speak) and puts you in an catabolic state. Doing anaerobic based training will correct both issues. The leanest people on the planet are anaerobic athletes.
