A lack of physical activity associates with decreased mitochondrial capacity and is a major cause underlying metabolic dysregulation and preventable diseases in modern societies. In contrast, an active lifestyle supports enhanced mitochondrial capacities and reduces the risk of degenerative diseases. Despite this well-known relation between health and mitochondrial function, there is no regimented, quantitative system, or database organised to routinely test, compare and monitor mitochondrial capacities within individuals or populations. Every study of mitochondrial (mt) function and disease in human tissues and cells is faced with Evolution, Age, Gender, Lifestyle and Environment (EAGLE) as essential background conditions characterizing the individual patient, subject, study group, species, tissue or – to some extent - cell line. Only a large and well-coordinated network can manage to generate the necessary number of consistent data to address the complexity of EAGLE. Using high-resolution respirometry, the K-Regio MitoFit and MitoEAGLE initiatives develop novel lab standards and diagnostic methods for monitoring of a mitochondrial fitness score. SOPs are elaborated for sample preparation, respiratory evaluation and data documentation. Fresh and cryopreserved cells obtained non-invasively from blood samples broaden the scope for respirometric mitochondrial diagnosis.
