Step 1 - find another pacemaker clinic.
Step 2 - Talk to a doctor. Not a tech. This is not something to screw around with, and I would be very leery of any place where technicians are giving advice like that. That kind of information should only be coming from someone who has RN, NP, or MD next to their name.
Tell him him what your goals are, and what parameters you should use for exercise. And then get a second opinion - ideally both should be from cardiologists who treat athletes.
Apologies for being so blunt, but as someone who's had heart surgery I a bit rabid on the subject.
