Where to buy exercise equipment in Nairobi?

I am going to be staying in Kenya for almost a year, and would like to pick up some exercise equipment that is too heavy for me to bring on my flight--namely, some dumbbells/handweights.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a sporting goods or fitnees store in which I could find these items? I will be staying on the northwestern side of the city while I am in Nairobi.

Thanks!

Probably a Sports House branch in Village Market (Gigiri) may be closer to where you stay. There is another branch in Westlans (would be Westgate centre or Sarit Centre - not sure) http://www.nairobisportshouse.com/

Nairobi Sports House for sure, and if paying in cash, ask for a discount.
