The CoQ you refer to...is it coenzyme Q?  If so, then perhaps the fact 
that it is utilized in electron transport and ATP generation might help 
explain greater physical activity (more efficient/proficient electron 
transport?).  If you do not refer to coenzyme Q, then...nevermind.

Would you clarify for me?
