It’s January and all you can think about is how your diet plans went out the window in December. All of the holiday parties, carbs, chocolate, and more carbs you delightfully enjoyed on your time off work.
The start of a new year is the perfect time to get back on track with your health and fitness goals. But it’s not always easy to go at it alone, especially when you’re making up your gym routines and eating the same thing for dinner every single night.
Thankfully you don’t need to do it all by yourself because there’s a customized online fitness and nutrition program that can help: Leansquad. Created by ex Canadian professional rugby player and trainer, Phil Mackenzie, Leansquad helps people get healthier, fitter and leaner. And you can do it all in just 90 days.
Here’s how and why it works.
Redefining health and fitness
When Phil Mackenzie’s groomsmen wanted to get in shape for his wedding, he came up with a sustainable plan to help them achieve that goal amid their busy schedules. After that, the trainer became so busy with clients that he decided to move his Leansquad business online. But it’s how he approaches health and fitness that set it apart from others in the market.
Mackenzie thinks that normal workout programs of over one hour are too long so Leansquad workouts are between 20 to 50 minutes. He also believes that meal plans featuring chicken and broccoli for three meals per day are boring, that’s why Leansquad has easy-to-make, fun, and delicious, recipes which prove that eating lean can also be exciting.
The retired rugby player also wants to help people make proper lifestyle choices and create good habits. He believes in enjoying himself and allowing his squadies (those taking his program) to do the same. That’s why Leansquad isn’t too restrictive — you can have “whoopsies” (unhealthy foods) and continue to reach your fitness goals.
If you’re looking for a fitness plan that can help you start the new year on the right track, the Leansquad #90DayLeanPlan has what you need. The custom plan is designed specifically for you with five workouts per week, as well as over 60 recipes. And it’s something that you can maintain after three months with the help of the Lean Continuation plan.
Workouts that work for you
Unlike other fitness plans, Leansquad workouts are customized to suit your lifestyle. If you want to do three home workouts a week and two at the gym, you can do that. You can also create a plan around your home workout equipment if you have any.
Mackenzie says that most of his clients are interested in losing weight, but some are more focused on building toned muscles. And the beauty of Leansquad is that the team can build a plan for any of your goals. Leansquad workouts are HIIT (high-intensity interval training) to spike your metabolism and promote fat burn. As you progress in your program, you can incorporate weight training.

Sticking to a healthy diet can be tough if you have no direction. Leansquad makes eating healthily easy by creating custom meal plans with a fun twist. Plus, you can have a meal plan created that’s conscious of any dietary restrictions, intolerances, whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, or have any food preferences.
Leansquad does all the hard work by breaking down your meals into three categories — lean meals (lower carbs that you can eat at any time), lean refuels (higher carbs that you can eat after you exercise), and lean snacks (low carbs for eating between meals).
A lot of meal plans ask you to record your food intake, weigh your food, calculate your macronutrients, use a point system, and input it into your smartphone. But Leansquad finds this too complicated so they do all the calculating for you. All you have to do is pick a meal in the appropriate category, cook, and eat it. It’s that simple.
