Hahahahaha it never hurts to be prepared now does it? Whenever we are at a meet and somebody needs something really random they always ask me first :D
my training session is straight after a coaching session, so I have all my coaching stuff - notebook, folder, session plans etc. Grip bag - including wrist bands, spray, chalk and handguards. Hair ties (enough for eveyone!), hair spray, hair brush and comb, glitter spray (not for me, but my gymnasts love it!) Food, 2 drinks, leggings and vest, deodorant. mobile phone, purse, inhaler, pain killers! I think that's about it!
A lot of things!

The hoop I left at the gym), pre-warps...

I have my grip bag(grips and tape inside it) Sneakers and socks, extra hair stuff,skittles and icebreakers(yummy) water, knee brace, ankle brace, and wrist brace...lets see... and 2 copies of my floor music!
So, as a coach, I have:
Notebook, session plans, Course log book, and 2 text books (as I 'm currently getting my l2 qualification), 5 pens, 3 pencils, White board marker, spare hair ties and grips, hair brush, deoderant, things a girl needs, hand moisturizer, hand cleaning gel, 2 pairs of white socks, purse, book for the bus, 2 water bottles.

Our gymnasts are required to have:
2 pairs of grips, 2 pairs of gloves and loops, tape, and required supports or shoes, notebook and pen, drink and snack, water, chalk, spare hair ties and grips.

It looks a lot written down, plus near competition time both I and the gymnast will have a spare copy of floor music.
Ok, so I generally have tape, moisturizer, hair brush, clips, scrunchies, hair bands, grip bag w/ extra grips (my regular grips stay in my locker at the gym), snack, waterbottle, deoderant, and other misc. object

Yeah, i guess you could say I'm prepared :)
Weeell, at the moment my gym bag is not permament, but here are things that will end up in there when I get my new one:
Deoderant, shorts, wristbands, grips, water, vitaminwater (twins! aimee and i :p), lots of hair elastics, hair clips, bobby pins, fruit, hand sanitizer, tracksuit, chapstick, tape and pre wrap/pro wrap, a chunk of chalk (hee hee), possibly a leo, a pack of gum, and Polysporin. Probably more.

I was just looking in my bag when this topic came to the top, so I figure it's a sign to participate.

I have a binder that I hardly ever use with routine info, and random facts I jot down, some cd's, and 2 fine point sharpies.

2 travel size lotions. I wash my hands a lot at the gym, they feel like paper if I forget lotion. The smell is something the girls have decided to play a guessing game with. They confuse vanilla with lavender pretty often!

One or 2 danactive yogurts. I can drink them fast and they keep me from feeling starving. Sometimes an Odwalla fruit drink.

My phone, wallet, keys of course. I leave my phone in the staff room when I put the yogurts in the fridge.

A bottle of water or 2 that I keep with me

burts bees lip balm
