Suggestions for bodyweight lower body exercises?

I'm looking for some new lower body exercises and circuits for some of my clients. I'm primarily looking for suggestions that are purely bodyweight exercises and that don't involve jumping, or being on the ground on the knees. I'll take any suggestions though! Thanks.

Getting certified...

Just a quick question on getting certified. So if I want to get certified, lets say the NASM cert., I would just go to http://www.nasm.org/ order the CPT standard package,study the material and then take the test and that's it? Dumb question I know.

Client has Lymes disease

My client took on a big program. She does conditioning, endurance and power based movements similar to crossfit. She also is training for a half marathon. I've never dealt with this before and have no idea what it entails and how to train with it.
