Kirsten (aka Red Schmed) enjoys going fast and being upside down. She was an acro gymnast for almost fifteen years, even competing for Scotland a few times, before her desire to get a degree at uni forced her to start spending more time the right way up. By 2017, she simply couldn't live that way anymore, so started pole dancing so she could spend as much time as possible upside down. She immediately became completely obsessed and discovered that her legs are too long for Instagram. In 2019, she won the Instructor category at Miss & Mister Pole Scotland because apparently you should always be a t-rex.


She loves conditioning, and will plank anywhere and everywhere. Her favourite tricks include straight-edge, pegasus and superman. She is the handstand queen and will incorporate handstands into pretty much everything she does.
