Response to training highly individual

I'm reading through the back-issues of Nature on their website, which I got access to with my subscription, and I came across an article about a long-term study of the effect of exercise on fitness. According to the study, different people get different levels of health benefit from the same training. I guess this doesn't come as a huge surprise, but its always a good thing to check whether things that "everybody knows" are actually true. I don't know what the practical conclusion is that I should draw from this. I suppose the thing is to measure what effect a particular regime of training has on me, rather than some population average. If this result were to hold for performance, as well as for health benefit, I suppose it would point towards the value of a personal coach. But I guess that's not really a controversial statement either.
