NYPD Police Officer Michael Counihan is 5 feet 9 and 210 pounds of pure, rippling muscle, that can bench-press 405 pounds, dead-lift 675 pounds, squat 635 pounds and hits the gym five days a week for two hours a day.
The 31-year-old Westchester native’s arms are so big, he wears extra-large shirts to make room for his bulging biceps, according to the NYPost.
Counihan, who shares hundreds of shirtless selfies on his Instagram account, @NoDonutsHere, has gained a reputation among law enforcement and first responders as the fittest guy on the force.
“Cops and firemen stop me all of the time on the street and say, ‘Hey, are you “No Donuts”?’ ” says Counihan, who says he started the account a few years ago to show that not all cops are pastry-scarfing pudges with middle-age spread.
“It’s to break the negative stereotypes against cops, that they are chubby and overweight and eat doughnuts. I wanted to build a platform to inspire first responders to be in shape.”
The 8-year vet who patrols The Bronx’s busy 52nd Precinct says his colleagues initially made fun of him for his social-media presence.
“They started poking fun and cracking jokes. Guys would say, ‘Your shirt is too small’ or ‘You’re on steroids.’ That kind of stuff. But now they support me. What keeps me doing it is the comments that I get from my followers. I found out that I motivate and inspire people,” adds Counihan.

“I would like to do something within the department to help first responders on a one-to-one level. Or even branch out and set up a program where cops reach out to community members and get involved in their fitness.”
