Do Bootcamp Classes Push You to Exercise Harder?

Bootcamp or Yell-Free: What's Your Favorite Instructor Style?

I tried to like spin class, but after a few too many classes with the instructor yelling for us to "Push harder!" over already too-loud music, I decided I wasn't a fan. While I enjoy taking exercise classes or enlisting the help of a personal trainer to keep me motivated (not to mention to make me finish an exercise when I think I just can't do it), I gravitate more toward instructors who firmly encourage without veering into drill sergeant territory.

I may not be signing up for a boot camp any time soon, but many people like the tough love they get from their no-excuses fitness instructors. What's your favorite style?

Yelling at me is a great way to make me want to do the exact opposite of what you want. Screaming at me to push harder? Yeah, think I'll lie down and take a nap until you calm down ;)

I like a cross between the two. Hardcore enough to push me when I'm slacking, but kind enough to realize when I'm just not in it that day.
