There is no direct way to to "turn fat into muscle", it doesnt work like that. You can however burn fat, and build muscle. Being able to see your abs is going to be a matter of diet, and getting your bodyfat low enough to see the defined abs under there.
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.
