This is a total girl post as indicated by the blog post title, so if there are any guys reading this well you can just move along now until I put up another post. 

For all my women readers though, let me tell you I have been feeling rather blah about exercising lately and I’ve realized it is mostly due to the way my body sometimes acts towards high impact activities.  It completely annoys me because I don’t feel like doing my workouts due to Athletic Leaks™.  If you’ve had a baby and tried to do a jumping jack or hopped around a bouncy house with your child, you probably know what we’re talking about.

I recently received a couple of product samples of Just Go Girl, which I am hoping will help me not to worry and be less self-conscious when working out and just concentrate on getting the job done.


Brooke Solis is the small business entrepreneur who developed Just Go Girl, here’s her story:

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.

  1. I got to try these out too and I'm happy with the way they work. It is like the ugly side of pregnancy. Oh, what those little ones do to our body.

  2. These sound neat, and I like how you can't see them under clothes. I don't have this issue but one day I probably will and it will be nice to know about these!

  3. I've heard of such products before but love hearing the story of a mom entrepreneur who took the initiative to design something to help herself and other women that may experience this embarrassing condition.

  6. I am going to check these out. I did not notice a problem until I had the surro baby and then when I was working out there were some issues afterward.

  7. Let's just say, if it involves a lot of jumping I make sure to control my water intake before and during my workout. It is great to see a practical inconspicuous solution available!
