So I'm getting old and finally joined a gym. Now I need suggestions for some workouts and maybe an android ap for tracking said workouts.

I enjoy riding the bikes and the rowing machine. I now need some workouts for strengthening my core, I think. I have some back issues and have been told that strengthening my core could be good for that. I hated gym class in high school and haven't worked out for the past 10 years, so weight machines are completely foriegn to me. I don't have a workout partner so things I would need a spotter for are kinda out.
I guess my question is do I need to just add some crunches to the begining of my workout? Are there other things to do?
Also is there a good app for android to track my workouts? Most I've found are for serious bodybuilding which is not for me. My gym has activtracks but I haven't signed up for it and don't know what it's about.
