In brief: Supply cell energy.

Mitochondria are where most cell energy is produced.
This is used to perform functions in the cell and the body. Many cells, like muscle/heart muscle have a lot of mitochondria in them so they can actively do things like contract and move the blood/bones/etc. They are connected to. Sperm cells have a lot of mitochondria that supply enrergy to their flagella/tail so they can travel in fluid.
