How did you transition from being a Professional Rugby player to becoming an entrepreneur?
In 2017 Phil and wife Brodie were expecting their first child. After some uncertainty with the future of US Rugby league, Mackenzie opted for retirement and shifted his mindset to business. As a professional athlete, he always took his fitness and nutrition extremely seriously and wanted to share his knowledge with as many people as possible. After a successful trial with a few friends before his Bachelor party (“How do we get abs like you Phil?”) he decided to develop a customized program for more than just his close friends… This was the birth of the LEANSQUAD.
Today Mackenzie is busy with hundreds of clients, making his mark not only in the Professional sports arena but also now in the Fitness world.
