What do we use for the axis of reaction profiles?

In this class do we us potential energy, enthalpy or gibb's free energy for the y-axis?
Do we use reaction progress or reaction coordinate for the x-axis?

From the reaction profiles that I have seen in the textbook, potential energy was used for the y-axis while the progress of the reaction was used for the x-axis.
