When Ariana was around 1½, I finally got around to going to the gym again. The minute I started jogging on the treadmill, I could feel it. Having two babies had done a number on my girlie parts, because with every step, it felt like I was thisclose to peeing myself. No joke. It was horrible. Nobody tells you about this when you're pregnant! Running was out of the question, so I made do with fast-paced walking & the elliptical machine. I've told a few people, and was always met with those "you're crazy" looks, so I kept it to myself. But, as it turns out, I'm not the only one who's had problems with this issue!
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.
ABOUT ATHLETIC LEAKAGE
The launch of JustGoGirl comes just in time for women to get in amazing shape for the summer. Whether you have just purchased your first gym membership, are getting back into the swing of an exercise routine or are already a dedicated fitness guru, you no longer have to worry about athletic leaks during your workouts.
Urinary incontinence, a topic once reserved for older sedentary women, has been put in a new light with recent media attention on women such as Miranda Oldroyd and Heather Welsh, star CrossFit competitors who both experienced athletic leaks during CrossFit competitions in 2013.
As an alternative to costly and risky surgery—which is not guaranteed to eliminate the problem and can result in catastrophic complications—the JustGo Pad™ is guaranteed to provide coverage against the most embarrassing of leaks. Created for athletic women of all ages, this pad is designed to be inconspicuous, comfortable and absorbent.
“I have five children, including twins, and knew that if I engaged in high-impact activities, I would leak,” said Brooke Solis, founder and CEO of JustGoGirl. “When I used traditional incontinence pads to get through a hard workout, I was self-conscious about the giant bulge that I was sure was visible in the back of my tight-fitting workout pants. I wanted to create a pad that is durable, discreet and comfortable enough to use every day.”
The JustGo Pad is available at JustGoGirl.com. The pads can be purchased in packs of 10 ($8) or as a membership at the following levels:
- Committed: 10 pads, $8 per month; for women who work out two to three times per week
- Dedicated: 20 pads, $14 per month; for women who work out five times each week
- Obsessed: 30 pads, $18 per month; for women who work out every day
“We want women to be able to take back their workouts with confidence,” said Solis. “I’m starting a conversation and creating a community where women can find a solution to this problem and get inspired to take on new fitness challenges together. Let’s go.”
