Intense cardio would be a type of aerobic conditioning.

But I think there is other types of conditioning that are more sport specific. A trainer would give specific exercises to improve someone's game (whatever that game may be) based on their strengths and weaknesses. So if someone needed better endurance.. then yes plyometrics or aerobic exercises may apply, but if they needed more speed in a movement or power, then perhaps powerlifting may be assigned as a form of conditioning for them.

Not sure if that answers your question.. ?
If it's important to you, you'll find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse.
