What quantity am I saying here?

"3 million athletes, trainers and businesses use my product..."

Am I saying 3 million in total, or am I saying 9 million in total use my product (3M athletics + 3M trainers + 3M businesses).

You are saying 3 million in total.

"Athletics" is awkward, incidentally. You appear to mean "athletes".
