For those of you who are wondering what Athletic Leaks™ are lets answer that question first. Athletic Leaks are leaks that are triggered by high-impact or strenuous activities. They’re completely different from the type of leak that happens when you sneeze or laugh, which is considered to be stress incontinence. Athletic Leaks™, or athletic incontinence, are only caused by high-impact activities. 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.
If you struggle from Athletic Leaks then you need to try JustGo Pads. JustGo Pads™ are worn under athletic clothing and so they are as low-profile and non-bulky as possible. While still being incredibly absorbent (it holds up to 140ml or just a bit over 1/2 cup of fluid). The pad is a unique teardrop-shape that provides protection where it is most needed, and none where it’s not. It’s durable and discreet even under the tightest of athletic apparel.

So who came up with JustGo Pads?
Brooke Solis was determined to get back into shape after she gave birth to her twins. Her 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.
