What is in your gym bag?

I am new to working out and we have a fitness room at my job. I have workout clothes and shoes. And hair ties. And ya know deodorant. I don't have a bag unless you count a grocery bag LOL

What type of bag do you use and what do you keep in it?

    Bag depends on whether I'm already dressed (tote) or changing out (duffel). At min, I pack tunes, headphones, water bottle, hand towel, weight lifting gloves, & HRM.

    i usually pinch my sons school sports bag,
    gym card,
    lip balm,
    chewing gum,
    spare headphones,
    pound coin (for lockers)
    50p for weighing scales.
    a notebook and pen (handy for when I change weights or anything)
    shower and hair wash if showering at gym. (I live right round the corner so most times go home)
    gloves for weight training.
    actually there seems to be more and more in there each week.

    For the gym.
    I have a crappy duffel style bag. I really need a new one.

    Tank top
    Capri bottoms
    Bathing suit
    Swim cap (2)
    Googles (2)
    Flip flops
    Towel or two
    Makeup bag with face moisturizer, eye makeup remover and deodorant along with female products
    Another makeup bag with shampoo, conditioner, body wash and moisturizer
    Hair dryer
    Hair brush
    Hair ties
    Gym pass
    Baby swim diaper
    Baby diaper

    I have a separate bag I keep for running clothes since I either run in the gym clothes above or I'm running outside and don't need to haul that all to the gym.
    I usually just throw it in a lulu lemon shopping bag.

    Winter tights
    Sports bra
    Wicking shirt
    Two or three warmer layers
    HRM strap

    To add - I get my workouts in when I can and live farther away from town so I always have a bag packed and in my car for times I am in town and can go. Sometimes I plan it but I also have to pack a baby up so it's easier to have it always ready.
    The gym is often just one of many stops.

    I use a gym on campus at my university, so I have my backpack with all my things for class, and then I have a separate tote back for my gym clothes (I use it because my friend got it for me for Christmas, and it has a custom print that says XXVI.II to commemorate my first marathon that I ran last year :D). In my gym tote, I have my shoes, running socks, my running clothes, a buff for wiping the sweat away so I'm not 100% gross post-workout, my ipod shuffle and headphones, sometimes I remember to throw deodorant in there, and sometimes I bring my garmin the event I run outside instead of in the gym. That's it!

    I use a Patagonia Black Hole daypack. I keep toiletries (deorderant, QTips, toothbrush and paste, razor), I Pad, earbuds, shoes, swim trunks, sandals, goggles, pad lock, shorts, cycling kit and heart rate monitor.

    This way I have everything I need in case I change my mind on what I want to do on the way to the gym or during the day. If my time gets crunched, I may opt for an hour in the pool. If a meeting gets cancelled, I might decide to get on the ellipitcal for two hours and watch a movie!
