Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Helen, thanks a lot for sharing your experiences. I once worked with someone who went from female to male, even though it is some time ago, I remember how overtime the style or quality of the talks changed. Not better or worse, just very different.

One difference I observed between my male and female students for yoga and meditation is their approach to doing it. It seems the man when they decided that this is good for them thats it, the decide once and then they just do it. The women on the other hand get up in the morning reflect, about how their doing their yoga would affect the children, the cat, the husband, etc.... and by the time they considered everything, most of the time it is to late to do it. On of the few things I found I prefer the male pattern. Okay, I know it sound cliché, but it really seems to work like this for most.

So, does Nike's Just Do It™ appeal mostly to men? Or is it ultimately addressed at women?

In terms of sales, for a very long time it mostly appealed to men. They started in the last couple of years to attempt to modify the images connected with the slogan to capture more of the female market.
