Okay ladies, it's time to get serious and talk about a topic that I NEVER in a million years would have thought I needed to talk about: athletic leaks. But then, I got older. I had kids. My body changed. And now, I know what other women have been talking about all this time! Brooke Solis gets it. In fact, she "got it" so much that she created Just Go Girl, a line of incontinence pads made specifically for active women. Brooke's story is super inspiring and I am excited to share it with you guys!
After the birth of her twins, Brooke Solis was determined to find a way to get back into shape. But an issue with athletic incontinence made exercise — particularly high-impact movement and jumping — a real obstacle. With five kids and a busy career as an attorney, Brooke looked to her
workouts as the one hour of the day that she could dedicate to herself but as much as she loved high impact workouts, the incontinence pads that she wore during those workouts made her self conscious and uncomfortable.
It didn’t take much research for Brooke to realize that she wasn’t the only woman dealing with athletic incontinence: Estimates find that 25 million women — from high school athletes and new mothers to women past their childbearing years — share her problem. That’s one out of every three women who may avoid exercise and its physical and mental health benefits because they are worried about athletic leaks.
Never one to bow to a challenge, Brooke decided that if the right product to address the issue didn’t yet exist, she’d create one.
After several trials, Brooke designed a pad that’s not only inconspicuous under form-fitting workout clothes, but is also comfortable and absorbent. While the pads are less bulky than a traditional sanitary napkin, they can hold up to 140ml of urine. She then decided to make the innovative JustGo Pad™, available to all active women as a solution to what can be an embarrassing and uncomfortable problem.
Since its launch, this groundbreaking product has allowed women all over the country to “just go” on their runs, to their group fitness classes and to CrossFit training without frustration or anxiety. As a result, Solis has heard from grateful women of all ages and stages of life. By opening up the discussion about this issue, Solis has created a community where women not only can find an effective solution, but support and encouragement, as well.
Raised in the Midwest, Brooke is a self-proclaimed “Type-A personality.” A graduate of Notre Dame, she worked in the financial sector before attending Yale Law School. A practicing attorney, Brooke currently lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and family. Her company, JustGoGirl, was launched in January 2014.
How great is Brooke's story? I love "real" women who start their own businesses, and especially when they are started to solve a problem! What a great story! I love the idea behind Just Go Girl, and I love that it's a pad that's not a "real" pad, something you can wear to the gym and not feel self conscious. Because, come on, we've all been there, and it's really not a great feeling. So, you wanna try them right? Just CLICK HERE to order a FREE SAMPLE!!! Don't worry, they'll come to your door nice and discreetly, no "PEE PAD" box or anything like that!!! Go ahead, check them out and give them a try, you'll be glad you did!!
