Yes gym with it: No, diastasis recti is the separation of the abdominus recti muscles away from the midline leading to protrusion. Often misdiagnosed as a hernia- which is a defect(hole) in the fascia. Other than for cosmesis, do not recommend surgical repair. If it is a hernia, then it should be repaired.
