In brief: Physiatrist

A physiatrist with experience in cardiac rehab would be the most appropriate person, in coordination with physical therapists, nurses or exercise physiologists.

In brief: Cardiac rehab

A program should have a physician director and nurses, exercise technicians, exercise physiologist, physical medicine folks.
The person directly monitoring specific exercises needs special training and could be nurse, exercise physiologist, physical medicine technologist or even some other trained professional.
