Fans openly wondered if Neil — who's battled both weight and vocal issues for much of the last decade — would be fit enough to anchor the 'Stadium Tour' or if co-headliner Def Leppard would simply blow Crüe off the stage night after night.
More than a year after bassist Nikki Sixx assured fans Neil was "killing it" in the gym, preparing for the tour, Neil labored through a solo set in Iowa and gave up during the last song, complaining that his voice was "gone."
But Neil says he's getting back on track. In a recent video posted to his social media, he claimed to be "Trying it all" on his new fitness journey.
Neil is seemingly back to training regularly, and he's also utilizing a pricey newfangled fat loss gizmo called Emsculpt Neo, which claims to be "a revolutionary non-invasive fat burning and muscle building device that helps trim, strengthen, define, lift and tone your body with incredible ease."
The device's creators say the machine using High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to simulate the effects of 20,000 sit-ups in just 30 minutes. They say that regular 30-minute treatments can help users achieve their "dream body" without sacrificing their lifestyle and spending hours in the gym.
Men's Health explored Emsculpt Neo's claims this past winter and found that the treatments can result in fat reduction and significant muscle growth, but as with all things fitness, results don't last if you don't stick to a healthy lifestyle. Physicians say the treatments are best used in conjunction with a good diet and regular training.
