One pectoral much different than the other

Training men and women

I am considering closing my gym to any new males, unless their spouse brought them in. Most are too irresolute and disorganised to get started, let alone keep on. 9/10 women who start make it through 3 months, but only 1/3 men. Fellahs, you're letting our side down. Thoughts?
