Tile to gym floor transition

I'm building a small home gym in the basement, and the room will be split between a living area and the gym area. The entire floor is tiled, and the gym area will have 7/16" plywood and 8mm rubber, for a combined height of 3/4" over the tile. Any ideas on how to transition that 3/4" height differential from tile to gym floor since it's a clear trip hazard?

Obviously you need a transition, there are so many available, one and two piece, you just need your heights, material, and finish and start shopping around!

Just a random thought, but if you don't need the access to be wall-to-wall, you could use a decorative "fence" of some kind for the majority of the distance and only need a transition for the "entry". Time and $ saver.
