I recently got into video shooting with my DSLR and have only been doing stills. I come to the realization that video is a lot more gear dependent in order to get any kind of professional footage.

But at the same time, I'm not as physically fit. So I have a really hard time carrying too much weight. I'm looking for a fluid head and a mini slider that is small, lightweight and compact that I can carry with my backpack. Price is not an issue. I already have a carbon fibre tripod for my stills so I'm set on that front.

Do these things exists?

Check out the Miller Air tripod. I have always loved the ergonomics of Miller tripods. This new one is under $1k, features ball leveling and a fluid head designed for DSLRs and supports up to 11 lbs. It appears to be relatively light also. Probably the perfect tripod for your needs. It's a new one, so I haven't seen it in person. But I have experience with Miller. I'm sure comparable brands have something too.
