Freestyle or Choreographed Classes: Which Is Better?
Freestyle workouts and choreographed classes each have their own benefits; but which one is right for you?

The strict regimen of choreographed classes keep you on track, but after time, they may get a bit monotonous.

Freestyle workouts can offer a bigger challenge and help keep it fresh. But the thing to consider is whether or not you have the daily motivation to keep up.

If a workout has a trademark name (e.g. Zumba) you can be assured it's going to be the same every class.

Listen in as Grace DeSimone and Melanie Cole, MS, discuss the benefits of both styles of workout and help you decide what's best for you.
