While Simon Trent is an older Gentleman, he seems to posses acrobatic skills similar to those of the Batman. Perhaps he did all his own stunt when making the TV show.
Within the Batman Animated Series, the Gray Ghost is a fictional hero who appears in a television show and in movies, played by actor Simon Trent. When Bruce Wayne was younger, he would often watch The Gray Ghost on television, and the dynamic costumed vigilante would be part of the inspiration for Bruce to become one himself later in life, donning the cape and cowl of Batman.
At the time that Simon Trent made his appearance, he was a washed up and typecast actor who was unable to pay his rent and so sells his memorabilia to cover the bills. He later meets Batman, after donning his Gray Ghost costume and mantle in hopes of helping Batman defeat the villain, and finds out that all of Batman's belongings and the Batcave have been inspired by the Gray Ghost. Trent redeems his fame by helping Batman solve a case that is identical to an episode of his show. The villain turned out to be the Gray Ghost's most passionate fan and collector (voiced by series producer Bruce Timm) who used Trent's memorabilia to blackmail the city with bomb threats. The story ends with a major home video release of the long lost TV series using Trent's personal film collection which likely has made him a wealthy man. During a public appearance in costume, Bruce Wayne comes for his autograph and subtly reveals to his hero that he is Batman.
