Bismarck gym rebrands fitness concept


Gold’s Gym in Bismarck is now Verge Fitness.

Owner Aaron Moos dropped the franchise to start his own fitness concept starting in early January.

Moos said rebranding has allowed him to define his business. He wants his clients to feel as if they are “on the verge of something amazing” and that they can accomplish anything they want.

Spending money on wellness is difficult, because it doesn’t come with instant gratification, said Moos said, adding he wants to promote taking care of oneself before health issues arise.

With the new name, Verge Fitness remodeled and brought in new equipment that Moos said fits emerging fitness trends. The equipment is focused on body weight-style workouts for the average person.

Moos has also created a “gym within a gym.” He started a studio-style workout called Regymen.

Regymen involves group instruction in 60- to 90-minute workouts involving cardio, boxing and muscle building. Having the workouts guided by a trainer in the group setting makes sure attendees have a routine and know exactly what to do rather than being overwhelmed with what to do first when they enter the gym.

Moos reports Regymen has been “a huge hit.”

Heart rate monitor tracking allows participants to gauge their progress as they use the treadmills, rowers and kettlebells and perform burpees and pushups, with a new workout every day.

“It’s like having a personal trainer without the high price,” Moos said.

As Verge Fitness, the gym still offers tanning, hydromassage beds, group classes, childcare and a juice and smoothie bar.

Hours are 4:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. during the week and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends.

Endodontists expand

Custom Endodontics is now offering once-a-week services in Dickinson.

“We are excited to be bringing our services into another major city in western North Dakota,” practitioner Steve Osmond said in a statement. “By providing endodontic care in Dickinson, we feel this will improve the lives of current and future patients who need the specialized level of care that we offer in a comfortable and relaxed environment.”

Endodontists are dentists by training but have completed additional years of training focused on deeper dental concerns, such as tooth pain, cracks, infections, root canals and other procedures on the interior of a tooth.

“Not everyone is aware of what an endodontist can provide, how we can deliver high-quality care for someone who is dealing with unique dental pain or problems,” said practitioner Nathan Wayment.

Custom Endodontics' Dickinson office is located at 401 Villard St. W #104. The business has offices in Bismarck and Minot as well. For more information, call 701-255-2523 or go online to

Sticker machine distributing local art

Albino Buffalo creates stickers using locally produced artwork from designers, illustrators, writers and photographers. The Fargo-based company is adding a machine to Bismarck.

Founder Jeff Knight has produced five series of stickers featuring 30 regional artists to date. More than 5,000 stickers have been dispensed from machines at Unglued craft market and Drekker Brewing. Rhythm Records in Bismarck will be the third sticker machine location, 212 E. Main Ave.

The purpose behind Albino Buffalo was to make local art affordable and accessible.

Job shadow week held

The Bismarck-Mandan Development Association saw an increase in employers and students participating in its third job shadow week, which was open to local college students and high school juniors and seniors.
