HIIT or high intensity interval training is an excellent way to train and not only effective but also proven extremely safe for people undergoing rehab in case of heart disease.
A 2012 study in the journal Circulation, by a Norwegian research team led by O. Rognmo, examined the risk of cardiovascular events during organized high-intensity interval exercise training and moderate-intensity training among 4846 patients with coronary heart disease in 3 Norwegian cardiac rehabilitation centers. The results of the study indicated that the risk of a cardiovascular event is low after both high-intensity exercise and moderate-intensity exercise in a cardiovascular rehabilitation setting. Considering the significant cardiovascular adaptations associated with high-intensity exercise, such exercise should be considered among patients with coronary heart disease.

So, go slow, but go progressive.
