Welcome to Beyond The Labs Clinical & Lifestyle Training, + Functional Clinician, Coach & Consultant C3 Certification Program

Labs Don't Lie, But They Never Tell the Whole Story

Attention Pharmacists: Please do Not Consider this Program if All You Want is Another Certification. BTL is for those who want to continually GROW both professionally and personally.

What makes this Certification the Best for Pharmacists in Functional Medicine, is the Embodiment of the Beyond Functional Approach, the Power of The Other Ones Community, and this has been created by a pharmacist who has been in this space for over 20 years.
Welcome to Beyond the Labs,
the Ultimate Functional Medicine and BEYOND Training, Mentoring & Coaching Program for Pharmacists who are looking to carve their own path to a profession that falls in line with their purpose and passion.

My name is Robert Kress, I am a Pharmacist and Functional Medicine Specialist, who has founded the practice and discipline of Functional Pharmacy- also referred to as The Godfather of Functional Pharmacy.

For over 20 years I have been working with patients as well as educating and coaching practitioners on implementing and growing functional and lifestyle medicine within their practice.

Along with my partner, Kay Corpus MD, we work together in a successful and purpose filled Beyond Functional Medicine practice guiding our patients to feel and be their best.

 …I teach what I do, my coaching and teaching comes from a combination of evidence based medicine, clinical and lifestyle practice.

What Makes BTL Different Than Any other Functional Medicine Training for Pharmacists?

 I am really glad you asked, because right now with over 60 members, we have pharmacists who span all disciplines of pharmacy, with varying experience in Functional and Lifestyle Medicine.

 Some have come to BTL totally green, no experience, and began seeing and acquiring clients in as little as 3 months.

 Many have come to BTL after going through numerous other, highly respectable (and expensive) trainings...and have attributed our program and our community as their game changer. (Take a look at the testimonials below)

Beyond the Labs is created by a Pharmacist (yours truly)

The Labs, Lifestyle & Community Coaching & Mentoring Method...The Possibilities- Our Future is Now

As the practice has evolved, we noticed through our combined over 50 years of practice in conventional and complementary therapies, we each have subtle nuances to treatments which complement each other for patients success.

A successful functional health practice will take into a account clients health goals, where they are when they begin, what challenges they have encountered, and through functional lab and lifestyle assessments create a path to take them where they want and need to go.

And...this is what I am about to teach you.

Through online trainings and group virtual meetings, and Live Q and A's we  train pharmacists like you in our method of the art and science of assessing labs and lifestyle (diet, movement, stress management, environment and BEYOND) and creating protocols based on the individual’s needs. 

As you can imagine, providing such clinical and lifestyle protocols are the core to any practice, has been a key to our success which you can use to either guide your own practice, or complement what you or someone else is already doing (i.e. collaborative)


Here's What It Can Do For You


Can you re-imagine pharmacy? As functional medicine is on a meteoric rise, many practitioners are looking for the secret formula of a successful practice, doctors, pharmacists...everyone.

When you grasp this training, you will be able to expand your current practice, create your own, or write your own ticket on other functional medicine practices who dearly need these services.

As most functional trainings fail through IMPLEMENTATION...it doesn't have to be that difficult, although it does need a proven method.

Most pharmacists are doing this as a side-hustle, and I want you to understand that the possibilities are endless and the need is real.

While the pharmacy industry is struggling and cursing out PBM's and DIR fee's, the monotony of count, stick, pour, and the overwhelm or less than stellar working conditions leading pharmacists on a mass exodus...the New Paradigm for pharmacy is here!

Who better to assess markers, manage medications, balance nutritional supplements, and provide lifestyle advice than pharmacists?

"Rob has been invaluable to my practice. The nuances that he addresses, from medication management to supplement dosages, in relation to lab values and lifestyle has made a tremendous impact to the outcomes of my patients. I believe every medical practice could use the assistance of a functional pharmacist, especially one that is trained through Rob’s program.

 Johann Beukes
"I encountered Rob in a CE that he presented, and the information was so transformational that I made the effort to seek him out on social media to see if he had a mentorship program. I immediately signed up without hesitation. Under his mentorship the journey of the next ten years was condensed into 3 months! He provided so much clarity as to where I was going and what my niche and next steps should be. I am forever grateful for his commitment to me, his mentee and his guidance on this journey."

Hear what other practitioners are saying...

Beyond the Labs has been so much more than just another podcast or fictional medicine training.   If you are feeling stuck getting your practice off the ground or feel overwhelmed by all that you are learning TAKE THIS COURSE.  
Rob offers an outside the box way to help your patients.   Unlike other FM courses he nurtures our RPh need for evidence on what to do by teaching how to interpret at a variety of labs.  However, the name of his training implies, he teaches so much more.   
Part of Rob’s approach helps you to look at yourself so you know how to encourage patients to be introspective in finding solutions.  He teaches you to analyze a a patient’s chief concern using all tools ranging from a philosophical to physical approach.  
The time and energy Rob brings to his trainings and office hours is invaluable.  Join BTL, you will be glad you did!

When I first decided I wanted to integrate more functional medicine into my pharmacy practice, I was very confused as to where to begin my training.  There were so many different programs that would happily take my money.  The more I looked, I kept coming back to the godfather of functional pharmacy, Rob Kress.  He has tailored his program specifically to pharmacists and has been using the protocols and techniques he teaches for many years.  He called me before signing up and we chatted for about 30 min and I knew instantly that this would be the best place for me to start my training.  He spends significant time coaching and helping us understand his patients and thought process.  The materials he provides in the Beyond the Labs program are extensive and very helpful.  I am so grateful for the support group of other like minded pharmacists in the cohort and the community that he has created.  I highly suggest that any pharmacist considering functional medicine to jump on a call with Rob before paying for other training programs and join the Beyond the Labs community!

I first heard about Rob and functional pharmacy through a CE I registered for on Freece.com. To say I was blown away, is an understatement! The topics being discussed were exactly what I envisioned Pharmacy should be, and not being only run by the government and insurance! The beyond the Labs training is an absolute GAME changer! I couldn’t think of a better way to further your Pharmacy degree now matter what area you are currently practicing! Don’t hesitate to sign up with Rob, he is a born teacher and an absolutely incredible human being….this is what every Pharmacist should be learning, be part of the movement!
