Thoughts? Well, first off, not everybody really agrees with your assumption that body types are indicative of anything at all as you'll discover by doing a search for "somatotype is bull"
Secondly, "weight" training conjures pictures of plates, bars, and benches. A better term is what the other posters used in "strength" training or another is "resistance" training. Unless you're looking to be a competitive bodybuilder or world-class athlete, resistance bands and body weight routines will do the same job with much less risk and expense.
Anyway, I agree with the others in that every"body" can benefit from a good mix of cardio and resistance training. Concentrate on what you want, but remember that cardio is where you'll find endurance, improved circulatory function, and flexibility among other benefits.

Everyone needs cardio and strength training, no matter what your body type.

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results." ~ Art Turock
"We have a saying in Tibet: If a problem can be solved, there is no use worrying about it. If it can't be solved, worrying will do no good." ~ 7 Years in T
I don't think a basic workout routine has to vary depending on body type. I recommend strength training (full-body routine, 2-3 x/wk) and regular cardio exercise (3-4 x/wk, 20-30 minutes) for overall good health.
