I would only consider a professional fit if I were have physical issues (that is, pain) while on the bike. I got my wife a fit because every ride would end for her with shoulder and elbow pain. Turned out her"self-adjusted" fit was very, very close, but the bars were too wide. Bought narrower bars on the spot, and it was an immediate improvement.

I've ridden 200 miles a week for 4 years straight. I am 99.9% sure if I plunked down the money for a fit, any changes made would be extremely minor. I've spent those years setting my bikes up for a mix of speed and endurance, and any fit changes would almost certainly favor one position or the other.
