I'm drafting Machop and Makuhita onto my team temporarily in sapphire to help with norman's gym, but they're both around level 12-15. any suggestions on good grinding spots with decent exp?

Don't use 2 fighting Pokemon. A level 30 Hariyama can pretty easily solo Norman. Make sure your Makuhita knows bulk up and vital throw and has an exp. share, and then battle Norman until you get enough experience to win.
Okay....
Sure. Why not.
Sorry machop.

Apparently the asker was okay with this comment, so I'm converting it into an answer.

Personally, I like running around the Jagged Pass with an EXP share when I feel like training mons. Hariyama is by far the best option to deal with Norman. If you can trade, Machamp is also excellent, and I find Rock types like Lairon and Graveler/Golem are also great by virtue of their typing resisting normal. Special mention to Lairon, who resists every single move except for Focus Punch and only fears getting Yawned by the first Slaking and getting chipped with Facade.
Two fighting types are overkill. Hariyama alone is more than enough for you.
I thought Machoke's low kick would be useful against the slackings tho. whatever, still a good answer.
