Are bicycle fittings best for certain types of riders, while others will see limited benefit?

I am a rather 'clydesdale' road biker who has enjoyed riding for a number of years, and generally understands bicycle mechanics. I have a modern Cannondale CAAD 10, and ride roughly 200 miles a month.
As many of us with hobbies do, we often purchase items or services that are generally targeted towards professionals (amateur photographers with pro-level lenses, as a course example). Is a bike fitting something that will generally help a triathlon athlete gain a few seconds over a long ride, or will someone who rides casually enjoy the process and have a more comfortable and productive ride?
