The Perfect Solution for Plus Size, Reluctant Exercisers

Are you ready for Less Pain & Greater Mobility so you can Get Your Life Back?

If you don’t do something…

  • Knee and joint pain gets worse
  • It’s harder and harder to get yourself moving
  • Your life gets smaller
  • Simple tasks like going to the store or doing the dishes leave you exhausted

It doesn't have to be like this!

Dear Friend,

Does this sound like you? It’s hard to get up from a chair, stand in line for a movie or go for a walk with friends. You’re embarrassed. Probably scared, or both. You might numb yourself with TV, Facebook or games so you don’t have to face what’s happening, and then beat yourself up for doing that…It doesn’t have to be like this…My name is Cinder Ernst and I’ve been helping plus size women just like you get stronger and stay active for nearly 25 years. I can help you too.

This is NOT a weight loss program.

The biggest mistake that people make that has them fail at fitness is to make it about weight loss. That won’t happen here. When I started my fitness business in 1989 I was obsessed with losing weight and how I looked. Exercise was another way I could beat my body into submission. I tried and tried but never got thin. Then, thank goodness, I found a mentor who taught me about body and size acceptance. I got off the diet roller coaster and started loving myself just the way I was. I realized that I could use that same loving approach with exercise. This shift changed my life, but also changed the direction of my fitness career. I have become the leading expert in weight neutral (fat friendly) fitness.

This is a GET YOUR LIFE BACK program!

We do that with these 3 Pillars:

  • Gain Strength – With custom designed strength building routines that are safe and easy to implement. Building strength is at the core of success with Getting Your Life Back. When you are stronger, you’ll have less pain and moving becomes easier. When moving is easier, you’ll move more. Gaining strength and moving more will allow you to build stamina which will increase your energy, health and well being.
  • Get out of Pain – Joint pain often comes from weak or tight muscles and so building strength and flexibility will help you reduce or eliminate knee and back pain. Along with precision strength building, we’ll increase muscle flexibility with safe and easy to implement stretches you can do anywhere.
  • Get your mobility back - As you get stronger and have less pain you will start to get your mobility back. As you mobility returns we parley that into the life you are meant to live.

When we build strength and stamina with exquisite care and kindness here’s what happens: Walking gets easier. Standing gets easier. Life gets bigger and better. THIS PROGRAM IS DELIVERED ONLINE AND ON THE PHONE, YOU DO IT FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME!

Here’s what you can expect in the GET YOUR LIFE BACK program!

    Module 1 - The Start

    The hardest thing, especially when you’re on a downward spiral of pain, sedentary lifestyle and denial, is to get started with an exercise program. Traditional fitness programs set you up for overwhelm and failure. I’m sure you’ve tried and failed in that arena before. The Get Your Life Back program is designed for someone just like you, so you can be successful getting started without feeling tortured. Even the advice from well meaning health practitioners who say “just find something you like and do that” is useless if every move you make hurts and really you don’t like to move at all. In The Start module you’ll learn my incredible system so you can stop the downward cycle of pain, immobility and depression and get your life back. Exquisite care and kindness are the keys in this module.

    Module 2 The Health Habit.

    One of the reasons that people don’t succeed with exercise is that they haven’t actually made heath and self care a habit. Once something becomes a habit it takes absolutely no effort to keep it going. The systems in this module will once and for all do this for you, you will make self care a habit. Next time the holidays or a vacation comes around you won’t have to worry about what to do because you will already have your best health as a habit.

    Module 3 Make you Mind your Ally.

    We are often our own worst enemy when it comes to creating health and fitness. The way that we think and the way that we operate stop us from creating health. When your mind is on your side, that’s the best ally you can have.

    Module 4 Cultivate Deep Self Love.

    No more guilt and beating yourself up. Self love if you’re hurting, self love if you’re not, if you’re exercising, if you’re not. It doesn’t matter what you do or what you look like, your love for yourself is unwavering and everlasting.

    Module 5 Bring it out in the World.

    When you are in pain, when you’re not moving- your life is stunted. Now that you’re feeling a different way your possibilities have expanded but your life may not have caught up yet. We help you find your knew expanded vision and live into it with focus and grace. Get Your Life Back and begin to live fully.

Time Tested and Proven Systems

As I helped hundreds of large women get active I started to notice some patterns. I discovered that most of my clients dealing with health and weight have knee pain and back pain. I studied what worked best to get their bodies stronger and also what helped alleviate the joint pain that was stopping them from enjoying life. From this research, I created a system of exercises and tools designed especially for bigger bodies,  that not only transforms knee and back pain, but keeps clients motivated and inspired to continue on and become healthier.

A current client in this program never thought she’d be able to work again…
but after only 4 months of following the systems, she has applied for a full time job!
Her investment in herself is paying off BIG TIME!

This program is for you if:

  • Your knees, back or hips hurt and you MUST DO SOMETHING NOW
  • You want to change the direction you are now heading
  • You’ve felt hopeless, until now…something is telling you “this is for me”

“All the swelling is gone from my ankles I am half way through my program with Cinder and all the swelling is gone from my ankles and legs. The hill near my house that I used to dread is now a piece of cake. I’m better at work, I can take long walks with my friends and I’m looking forward to handling my busy season with renewed energy and enthusiasm.”

- Debra Dietrich, SF

“I’m doing it!!! No sitting out this timeI am doing my vacation! Getting from place to place. Up and down ladders to snorkel, in and out of pools, walking to the beach and pool, to and from the room to beach, pool, cafe…I am doing it!!! No sitting out this time. Thank you so much for mentoring me and what a courageous woman I was to keep doing all those small steps…”


“I honestly feel I’ve turned back the clock at least a decade.When Cinder was recommended to me by a friend, I was 65 and had not done any form of exercise in more than 15 years. I knew something had to change. My body was telling me in no uncertain terms that the aches and pains and general lethargy I was experiencing would only get worse and begin to really affect my ability to be comfortably mobile as long as possible. Since my work started with Cinder, I honestly feel I’ve turned back the clock at least a decade or more in terms of overall energy and strength. Please believe me when I say this woman is truly gifted in her craft. She knows how to encourage motivation and hope with the lightest possible touch while keeping you moving forward.”

- Maureen Oddone

More Strength=Less Pain

How do you increase strength…exercise of course. But the fitness industry SUCKS  — especially if you’re plus size. Let’s face it the traditional fitness hype doesn’t work for most people. A recent study showed that 60% of women with knee pain don’t exercise even 10 minutes a week. In the same research it showed that a reluctant exerciser at age 50 becomes completely sedentary by age 65. So it’s a conundrum; exercise is the answer to staying mobile, having less pain and more energy…but how do you do something that has eluded you for so long? It’s hard to get started, and hard to keep at it, and all that gets worse as time passes.

More Strength=More Energy

How does strength increase your energy…by increasing your stamina. So exercise again. One of my clients who last year could not stand in the shower or climb a flight of stairs just got back from Hawaii where she hiked over lava rocks, swam under a waterfall and swam with dolphins. That’s why people are so excited about the Get Your Life Back program that I created just for plus size women. Building strength and stamina is the answer to pain reduction and boosting your energy. You can become stronger and stay active for the rest of your life.

Wouldn’t you love a permanent and reliable solution?

Get Your Life Back is a 6 month program. The length of the program will guarantee your results will be reliable and repeatable, and that’s what makes it work forever. You will absolutely get over the exercise and self care hump during the program.

I have discovered in my decades of working with folks and fitness that there is a quitting point at 2 or 3 months in. You will be supported to go past where most people get stuck or off track. The systems and strategies we use are repeatable so you never have to feel stuck or frustrated again about fitness, health or self care.

People tell me all the time that exercise is the first thing to “go” when life gets complicated. Don’t let that happen to you…again. With the proven systems that you will learn, use and love during the course of the program you will finally be able to achieve that elusive life balance that will keep you healthier and happier for the rest of your life. Imagine handling this now and never having to struggle again. I can’t promise you will never have pain again but my systems will teach you what to do if your pain flares up or you get injured, you’ll always have a way to take great care of yourself.

Personal Attention

Personal Training will not get you your life back because it doesn’t work for reluctant exercisers. And it will cost you more money than this program. More on that later.

As a member of Get Your Life Back you have my personal email and my full attention. When you come up against an obstacle be it physical, mental or emotional I am there for you as your coach and personal fitness trainer. My 30 years of working with large bodies has given me tons of wisdom and practical advice that you can’t get anywhere else. I’m there for you when you need it most. During Module 1 The Start we have daily check ins to make sure you're on the right path and we celebrate your accomplishments together.


Cinder I’m not in San Francisco, how can you help me?

This program is designed to be done in the comfort of your home. We meet easily on the phone and we use all the technology to get you moving in ways that are highly effective and easy to do in your home. And if you think you don’t have time, think again. The laser targeted exercises give the the greatest results in the smallest amount of time. All calls can be recorded so you can listen again later. And you don’t have to go to a gym or buy any expensive exercise equipment. All my strategies are designed to be done easily right where you are in the time you have. Many of my clients do their pain relieving energy boosting routines before they get in the shower each morning or while they have their morning coffee. I have thought of everything to make this easy and doable for you.

What does it cost to not handle your joint pain, your lack of mobility and low energy?

Maybe you can’t walk across a parking lot without pain and running out of breath, that will not get better unless you do something. You cannot wait any longer this only gets worse and harder. What does it cost you in personal happiness? How does this negatively impact your relationships? Your work? What matters most to you? You need your body to participate in life! This cost is different for everyone. Pause a moment and consider how will you handle all this? When? Imagine a year from now…2 years…5 years and you haven’t handled this. Think back how has it gotten worse? Do you wish you had already been on the road to less pain and more energy? Don’t wait any longer. How much money have you already spent on trying to heal your knee and joint pain? Each year in the US 19 million doctors appointments are about knee pain. Doctors, alternative doctors, supplements, acupuncture, massage, chiropractors…maybe you have had surgery or it’s pending that is at least a $7000 prospect…and studies have shown that surgery is NOT more effective than targeted exercise for many knee problems.

No matter what else you have tried, everything works better if you are stronger. I know people whose spend thousands of dollars each month on medicines and holistic health practices, but none of these work as well when you are not exercising or moving.

What about personal training?

When you hire a personal trainer your fitness is assured while you are meeting with your trainer. I have been a personal trainer for more than 25 years. What I learned is that many folks don’t actually create an exercise habit while working with a trainer. You don’t need to do anything except show up. That’s wonderful if you have the time and money to have a trainer for the rest of your life. But you will not get a permanent and reliable solution to your fitness question.

Speaking of money,for personal training to be effective for a reluctant exerciser, you would pay between $600 and $1200 each month. Your fitness results would happen. But they go away if you don’t exercise.

When you follow the Get Your Life Back program you can go from being a reluctant exerciser to a life long mover and shaker for less than it would cost you to hire a personal trainer. And the information is custom designed for larger people who don’t have an easy relationship to exercise. And you don’t have to worry about getting stuck or frustrated ever again with exercise or fitness!
