Video of Boy in Wheelchair Jumping on Trampoline

This Video of a 4-Year-Old Jumping on a Trampoline in a Wheelchair Will Put an Enormous Smile on Your Face

Four-year-old Wyatt just had the time of his life at TNT Kid's Fitness & Gymnastics, a gym that accommodates kids with special needs. According to ABC News, the courageous young boy was born with spina bifida and uses a wheelchair, and though he's always been curious about trampolines, he's never tried one because of his condition . . . until recently.

In this now-viral video, Wyatt and his trainer, Nate, jump on the trampoline together. Wyatt lets the experience settle, then flings his arms in the air with joy. And once he really gets the hang of things, he belts out a loud "Faster!" and everyone in the video starts laughing.

In addition to jumping on the trampoline for the first time, Wyatt's mother, Allison Burggraff, loves what the gym has been able to offer her son. "They empower him with affirming words; they tell him he is strong, brave, and courageous," Allison told Good Morning America. "When Wyatt has gone through medical issues — getting an IV or MRI — we can say to draw on that experience and say, 'You can do hard things.'"

We can't wait to see what else Wyatt can do!
