Imagine it. You are a runner. Or any avid fitness buff really. Then you have a child. Or two. Or more. And suddenly you can’t make any jolting movements without having to go to the bathroom. Let’s be honest, most days you can’t even sneeze. Thank you kids!
The good news is that you are not alone. Sure it isn’t the most flattering conversation but it is something that happens. Stress incontinence and even athletic incontinence is common. But no one talks about it. It is like the dirty little secret of having children.
You will have a beautiful baby but you may pee your pants every time you laugh or sneeze. Oh you want to jump rope? Good luck with that.
There is even better news though and you don’t have to skip your favorite workouts for fear of peeing your pants.
From inventor Brooke Solis:
I gained a lot of weight when I was pregnant with my twin daughters — almost 100 lbs. But I was working full-time and didn’t have the hours or motivation to exercise, so I ate a lot of pie, and Chinese food, and was even caught by my husband one shameful night after Thanksgiving drinking gravy from a gravy boat. After I had the girls, I was eager to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight and knew the fastest way to do that was through high-impact exercise and running. Only here’s the thing: I also knew that I would leak if I ran or jumped. So for years I used low impact exercise to get back into shape, but I couldn’t get back to the body I wanted.
Fast forward to 2012 when a friend invited me to a conditioning class at her (now my) gym. I was a little worried, but decided to go, equipped with a traditional incontinence pad. As the class progressed, I could feel the pad getting bigger and bigger as the instructor barked orders to do what must have been a thousand jumping jacks. I was pretty sure I looked like a bonobo from behind. That day, the workout was amazing. But the pad was a nightmare. And it made me start thinking of ways to solve my Athletic Leak™ issue.
A couple of months of some brainstorming and design trials, and Just Go Girl was born.
Just Go Girl pads are absorbent, light and teardrop shaped. They provides full coverage in front, where it’s most needed, and tapers in the back so it won’t show, no matter what you wear. These pads are the perfect fit and solution whether you’re a runner, a kickboxer, or a fan of high-intensity training. They will even work if you decide to jump rope.
