With all of the focus on Black Friday shopping, it may seem like there's nothing else going on.

Oh, but there is. 

From free workout classes to rescuing shelter animals, we've got you covered with ideas that won't put you anywhere near the mall. 

Free workouts

Get your heart rate up at a free HIIT (high intensity interval training) class at the fitness studio Floor Polish.

Free classes are at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. Each class is about an hour long. 

Floor Polish is located at 408 N. Fourth Ave.

While you're there, you can take advantage of the studio's deals. It's offering an unlimited monthly pass for $50, a gift-wrapped five-punch pass for $25 and 35 percent off all Floor Polish apparel.

Go outside

The upgrades in Gov. Doug Ducey’s proposal are expected to increase annual revenue by $1.2 million at the park near Oracle.

Arizona Sate Parks and Trails has teamed up with REI to encourage people to explore a state park by offering free entry on Friday.

All you have to do is stop by REI at 160 E. Wetmore Road (in the Tucson Mall) by Wednesday and pick up your free day-use pass.

The pass will get you into any Arizona State Park except for the Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Nearby, you can visit Catalina and Oracle parks or you can take a day trip to Patagonia. 

Note: The pass is not good for tours or camping.
