Hello, SamwitDangol, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange.

 John met Jack when he was exercising.

Sammy met Sophie when she was eleven years old.

Although the when-clauses sound better after the main clause, you could say the following to prevent ambiguity:

- When John was exercising, he met Jack.

- When Jack was exercising, John met him.

- When Sammy was eleven years old, she met Sophie.

- When Sophie was eleven years old, Sammy met her.
