from a technical point of view it's possible to change details through for a verified listing via GMaps/MapMaker alos

But it should not go through without approving.


In the concrete case the same user "HikerKM" changed the listing to the bad name "DieZel Fitness (formerly Fitness Concepts)" and changed  to 


Since the listing is verified the owner can change it allways back to the content he provided in his dashboard

The page owner can also contatc busines support requesting help to get the content as he provided in his dashboard shown up with the listing.

the latter can achieved:

The best way to contact business support:
contactflow & request a call back
Talk to a specialist
Global Phone Support Hours:
You can request in many (maybe not all though) countries a call back of experts of business support by phone. This should be possible on official working days and during their the day time only - try it from 9 or 10 AM until 5 or 6 PM
