Mitochondria produce ATP that provides readily releasable energy to cells . In or- der to maintain proper function, the mitochondrial network undergoes fission to separate damaged mitochondrial fragments from the healthy, and fusion to reduce mitochondrial dysfunction [2,3]. Dynamin-related proteins that are known to regulate mitochondrial fusion include Mitofusin 1 (Mfn1), Mitofusin 2 (Mfn2) and Optic atrophy gene 1 (Opa1), whereas the major effector of fission is Dynamin-related protein 1 (Drp1) which has been most frequently associated with pathological conditions . During aging, mitochondrial performance declines as the balance between fusion and fission is often compromised [5,6]. This imbalance has been implicated in neurode- generative diseases , sarcopenic muscles  and various other pathological conditions [2,4]. Exercise has been reported to increase mitochondrial biogenesis, remove damaged mitochondria, stimulate mitochondrial function [5,7] and delay aging associated decline in physical fitness [8-10] and cognitive function [11). Exercise in the elderly has also been reported to improve mitochondrial efficiency as observed with the increase in Ser637 phosphorylation in Drp1 . Therefore, promoting exercise is a promising strategy to improve lifestyle of the cur- rent aging society, requiring further research to better understand the mechanisms of mi- tochondrial dynamics.
