Bryan Buschhorn

Owner/Head Coach
I was born and raised in Independence, MO and moved to Springfield to go to Missouri State (SMSU) and play baseball for the Bears.  After playing four years with the Bears and three seasons of Independent League Baseball with the Ducks, I started coaching/instructing at a number of different levels from 8 year old campers to college summer leagues.  In the couple of years prior to fall of 2012 when I had my first Crossfit experience, I had been away from coaching due to schedule changes.  Crossfit and the people in the crossfit community have done many things to change my life in a positive way, but the two that I am most thankful for are the opportunity to be reunited with my passion of coaching others and the opportunity to experience and see others experience the type of relationships I had in college athletics which only develop when succeeding and failing together…I do also enjoy training and filling that competitive void.  My two main missions as a coach are to help every member achieve success as defined by personal goals, and to have every member achieve the level of confidence in themselves that I have in them.  I have always believed that every educated coach can point out what someone is doing wrong, but the good coach can set the path to realizing potential and do so without causing resentment. I have been very lucky to be on this Crossfit journey with my wife Dorsey and 10 year old daughter Coco who are both amazing people and athletes…and put me at the 3rdbest at Crossfit in the family.  We at Criterion try to take the approach with coaching and programming of constant quality improvement because as John Wooden says, “It’s the little details that are vital.  Little things make big things happen.”
