Welcome to Racked's Fitness Week: five days of workout coverage, so that you can start your New Year's resolutions off right.
We're living in a New York City where Liquiteria will replace Gray's Papaya. Times are juicy, and the market is responding with not only a swarm of juice bars, but an avalanche of cleanse options—including an increase in cleanses that include (gasp!) food.
After the jump, we've broken down 12 of New York City's juice cleanse options. You'll find a rundown of each package offered, what it will cost per day, and where to track down the liquid veggies that will—God willing—change your life.
BluePrintCleanse at Exhale
Packages offered: Three different levels of six-juice cleanses. There's also the Exhale Spa Package ($295), which marries your three day cleanse with three classes at Exhale and a "healing spa therapy."

Location: 85 Stanton Street, Lower East Side; 630 Flushing Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Packages offered: OA offers four levels: Easy, Fast, Deep, and Green. The first two levels include food (it's raw and vegan, but it's food) while the Deep level is liquids only and Green is, well, all green juice. Turn your Deep cleanse into a Beauty cleanse by tacking on "a Tata Harper detoxifying facial kit." Try a Community Cleanse for moral support.
Price per day: The Community Cleanse is five days at $50 per day (only available for the Fast and Deep levels). The Easy and Fast cleanses are $195 for three days, or $65 per day. The Deep cleanse is $180 for three days, or $60 per day (it's $63.33 per day with the Beauty upgrade). Greens only will run you $210 for three days, which is $70 per day.

Price per day: A single day will run you $55, the five day option cuts the cost down to $50 per day.
Location: 19 Kenmare Street, Nolita
Packages offered: This newbie on Sixth Avenue is offering a Winter Reboot which focuses more on bolstering the immune system than detoxing. It's available in three, five, and seven day sessions and includes three juices, one bee pollen water, a winter veggie soup, and a mushroom tonic.
