Brief Answer:
Exercise burn-out

Detailed Answer:

I am sorry about your pain. I am glad that you are going to the gym from past 6 days. However, it is necessary that you start slowly, follow the exercise routine in a steady way, and gradually increase the pace of the exercise. This is how you are supposed to do a gym routine.

It seems like you have strained quite a bit by doing cardiac exercises for nearly an hour daily. In my view, it seems like you have pulled the abdominal muscles, and put much strain on them. This is the reason why your stomach is paining very much and it has become hard because of muscle spasm. It is making you unable to walk as well.

In my opinion, you should stop exercising now. You must give complete rest to your abdominal muscles, and make them relaxed. Once they are in normal state, you can re-start the gym work out again. However, this time, please start it slowly with mild stretching exercises, and then go for the cardiac exercises.

You can take a tablet of Dolo 650mg if the pain is severe. In addition, it seems like your acidity problem has increased because of this muscle strain. You can take antacids like Rantac or Gelusil for some time for relief.

Please drink plenty of water orally and rest completely for a few days. You should be fine soon.
