I am going to start this post off right away by warning the menfolk to stop reading:) Just right now, click that x and close the tab. Believe me, this is not something you all would relate to or be interested in.
Okay, are we safe now? Only ladies reading, right? Today I want to talk about athletic leaks. How many of you ladies out there struggle with this issue or know someone who does? I personally rarely have this problem. But I do know women who do and I know that it can be a big factor in exercise or doing any kind of sport. This can even affect other areas of life and at times it can just be about bladder control, of which you get less control over after having children. So when I was offered to post about Just Go Girl, I knew right away that my readers would be interested. I know it is something that many women don't want to even talk about, but hopefully not anymore with this product. Take a look at why Brooke Solis, mother of five, founded Just Go Girl.
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.
When I received my samples I was really impressed. These are basically pads but very, very thin layered. The shape of them allows for wearing shorts, skirts, etc without them being seen. I didn't even realize it was there when I used it for my racquetball. I wore it once just to see how it worked and if it was uncomfortable or visible through the panties. It worked great! We all know how form-fitting pants and workout clothes are and these are wonderful for underneath.
Ladies, I would urge you to go to the Just Go Girl website and order the free samples. You will receive two, in a discreet package, and this allows you to try them and see if they work. They also have subscription options to get them every month. You decide on how many you want. If you know anyone struggling with athletic leaks, head them to Just Go Girl!!
