Steve Polley

About Steve: My college majors were life science & physical education, and after a couple of years as a college instructor, I ran a large corporate fitness and wellness program for a Fortune 25 company for 20 years. My entry into sports was in HS as a competitive swimmer, and in 1979 I entered my first triathlon with two age groups: 29 & under, and 30 & up!  I'm a native Californian and live in Thousand Oaks, and I'm in a committed relationship.
