There are only two practice uses imo;
1. Greater awareness of perceived type weakness as seen by others that you may have otherwise been unable to recognise, and
2. Improved understanding of different preferences in others.
Could type help me in coaching people in the gym?

I think if you achieved an in depth understanding of the theory's strength and weaknesses that it would be helpful in coaching. The ability to coach seems to be in large part due to the ability to understand your student. The theory will help a little there. Will the results be worth the time needed? I can't say.
Depends on how you interact with them, how sure you are of their type and what you want to achieve by using it. For me I find it helps me a lot in my work relationships both in understanding where my staff are coming from without them having to tell me and then presenting things to them in a way that gets the results that I want out of them, plus it helps me understand what results my bosses want from me and why.
