One of the many unspoken things that happen when you become a mom is incontinence. You know what I am talking about...sneezing and coughing will catch you off guard if you don't try to squeeze tight or hold them in. While it may be embarrassing, this is just the way of life after giving birth. You learn to accept it, and expect it.
While I am all to familiar with the little leaks when laughing and coughing, I wasn't ready for athletic leaks, too. But, I soon found out about it last year when I started to run around, and joined the gym to lose the excess baby weight. When I took to the Internet to read about athletic leaks and if there products on the market to use when working out or running, I was surprised to find a limited product offering. And, the products that were out there looked like bulky liners I had used in the girls' cloth diapers, or something you would expect for heavy flow periods or even with adult diapers. I thought to myself, how are you supposed to wear bulky liners like these when you have on spandex or other tight fitting work out clothes. It is one thing to have to deal with athletic leaks as a mom, but having to try and hide bulky pads, come on.
It wasn't until recently that I finally found myself saying, "Yes, thank you!" when I stumbled across Just Go Girl products. Finally, someone decided to come up with a product that women could actually use, and not feel self-conscious about. And, while we usually don't like talking about leaks, including athletic leaks, I found myself talking with my girlfriends about these new Just Go Girl products, and they were excited and eager to try them out for themselves, as they too suffered from athletic leaks.
Right now, you can visit the Just Go Girl website and order a FREE sample to try out this new product offering, with real women who experience leaks, in mind. Once you try out the new Just Go Girl product offering, you, too, will find yourself saying, "Yes, finally!" like I did. :-)
I am not alone in sharing my story about athletic leaks. Brooke Solis, the one behind Just Go Girl, shared her story and how she came up with the Just Go Girl product line. And, I wanted to take a moment to share her story with you, as I always like to share inspiring stories of mom inventors, just like Brooke Solis, especially when they come up with must-have items for moms.
"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.
The JustGo Pad™, with its revolutionary teardrop design (patent pending), is available exclusively at JustGoGirl.com.
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."
