Speak Up: Fitness Instructors That Yell to Motivate

Sometimes when I hit a mental block while working out, a few strong words of encouragement such as, "Don't give up," or "Just two more reps," or "Jump a little higher," are definitely appreciated. I always end up feeling so proud for pushing myself a little harder, and without the fitness instructor or personal trainer's inspirational nudge, I don't think I would have been able to get there.

Some instructors can be a little more forceful or overbearing though. They may feel that yelling is the only way to motivate someone beyond their personal limits. So how do you feel about being yelled at? Are there times when you appreciate the tough love, or is there no place for screaming demands in your exercise world?
