In brief: Knowledge=power
Most important is to understand what this diagnosis means, and what the risk is to you as an individual.
The manifestation of this genetic abnormality is extremely variable, so you cannot assume what you read about applies to your case. A cardiologist with experience in this disease can advise you on your risk of heart arrhythmia, as well as exercise that should be safe, or avoided, in your case.

In brief: A hard diagnosis...
To understand and deal with, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may be treated in a variety of ways to avoid a sudden cardiac arrest.
However, i would connect with information on the website for the hypertrophic cardiomyopathy association, www.4hcm.Org. This might provide some helpful resources for you.
