About LeanSquad

My name is Phil Mackenzie, and I am a former Professional Rugby Player and the Founder of the LEANSQUAD (I am also a father two twin boys, a toddler and Husband to my beautiful wife Brodie but I’ll get to that shortly)!


Firstly, after nearly 10 years of playing in the best league and two World Cups with Canada I eventually retired and as we were having our first son, Hudson, I made it my mission to help ANYONE and EVERYONE get fit in a realistic and sustainable way.

After I retired I quickly realized how “real” real life was. As a dad, as a husband and as someone who enjoys a “whoopsie” I knew I didn’t want to train in the gym for hours or follow some ultra restrictive diet that would ruin all the fun!


So, instead, I used everything I had learned from the worlds best trainers and nutritionists and set out to change the way people train, eat and transform their bodies forever! This is when the LEANSQUAD was officially born!

Fast forward to today and over 10,000 mothers, dads, students, business men and women all over the world have transformed alongside me!


But not only that, since founding the LEANSQUAD it’s the community I am most proud of.

Oh and I forgot to mention a huge shout out to my incredible wife Brodie (and super Mom to our beautiful twins and toddler)! They are the number one Squadies who truly motivate me to do my best to get more out of every single day!!

So, with that said, my mission every single day is to wake up, inspire as many people as possible, and create the BEST PROGRAM on the planet to ensure thousands more lives continue to change EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!!
