    Am I making sense? Like, if there are four people working out, three women and a man, could you say "hay cuatro hombres"

    No, because there is only ONE man and three women, you should use mujeres...

    No, "hombres" is very very very rarely used for both man and women. "Hombre" might be used for men and women when it really means "mankind". "Cuatro hombres" is 4 men, no women in there. If there are 3 women and one man, we'd go with "cuatro personas" - four people; "cuatro mujeres" wouldn't be right either.
