Default "Curves" for Men?

There are all these 30-minute circuit clubs for women. Why none for men? Or
are there in Southern California?

if you think about why women go to Curves, you'll see that the concept
would not appeal to enough men to be a worthwhile business
proposition.
1. the opposite sex isn't there
2. no measurement of progress
3. closed on weekends so you don't feel like YOU_HAVE_TO_GO
4. tying closely into #2, no one can tell how hard you're working out

there must be more reasons.

Because men want a workout out that actually works.
Curves is a social club and guys get at the the local Bar.

There is a growing franchise called Cuts for Men. Same idea as Curves
for Women.
