The best way to reward yourself after a hard workout is with a freshly pressed juice.

Recently the health trend has expanded all over Washington, D.C. Here are four juice spots worth checking out.

Jrink Juicery

Jrink Juicery was created by “two burnt-out Wall-Streeters” who wanted to reexamine their lives and create a product that would fit their new, refreshed lifestyle. The juice is sold online, in many fitness boutiques around the city, as well as a couple brick and mortar shops. All juices are cold-pressed right here in the D.C. area, in Falls Church, and use the highest quality ingredients possible. Jrink is also eco-friendly by bottling their products in recycled glass. Best-selling juices are the detoxifying and cleansing options. You can take a quiz on their website to find out which type of juice is the best for you and your needs.To learn more about subscription services a well as all the products sold, you can visit the Jrink website here.

Fruitive is all the healthy buzzwords rolled into one. They’re organic, sustainable, fresh, quality, and the list goes on and on. They also sell more than just juice, so you can grab lunch and dinner there as well. The company’s main focus is making sure that all their offerings are 100 percent plant-based. According to their site, “Only veggies, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices are on our menu.” The cold-pressed juices are diverse and unique in flavor and purpose. Try the Beet Faster juice for the ultimate boost before a workout, or the CitruCarrot for an extra dose of vitamins and minerals. You can view the full juice menu here.
