Store History

The Exercise Equipment Center was started by Tom Lundeen in October of 1983 as a subsidiary of The Exercise Equipment Company out of Billings, MT. Within six months Tom moved to a larger location on West Central Avenue in Downtown Minot and became North Dakota’s first independent specialty fitness retailer. In October of 1986, Tom expanded the store into a larger facility in South Minot, which featured a showroom, a workout room and three racquetball courts. Just prior to the Grand Opening a fire on November 6, 1986 destroyed the Building. Within 6 months Tom reopened Exercise Equipment Center in a new location on East Central Avenue in Downtown Minot. In the summer of 2000, Tom sold the business to Brian Nelson and Paul Laskowski. Throughout the years, Tom continued to help the new owners in various capacities until buying the business back in March 2011. The business was most recently purchased by Tom’s son Matt in 2012 and will continue as North Dakotas premier specialty fitness retailer for home and commercial sales.
